Truck driver arrested over imprisonment claims

Posted:

CLEVELAND (WATE) - A truck driver was arrested Friday for imprisoning his driving partner in another part of the truck.

Loria Ann Rogers, 41, emailed a Knoxville police officer to say that she was being held against her will by her driving partner.

Rogers said 64-year-old Carl Scott assaulted her during an argument about driving arrangements.

She said Scott then confined her in another part of the truck while he continued to drive.

Rogers said Scott refused to stop the truck and that she was unable to call, so she sent an email to a Knoxville police officer.

She told the officer that she was being held against her will, that she was afraid of Scott, and that she did not have a way of exiting the vehicle.

Rogers gave her location and a description of the truck. Using this information, a deputy parked along I-75 and waited for the truck.

When he spotted the truck and a man driving it who matched the description Rogers provided, the deputy pulled the truck over.

The deputy said that based on statements given by Rogers and Scott, visible bruise marks on Rogers' body and the emails, he arrested Scott for false imprisonment.

Scott was taken to the Bradley County Justice Center.
