FBI agents at HQ of Haslam family business

Posted: Updated:

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - FBI agents have blocked the entrance at the Knoxville headquarters of Pilot Flying J, the truck stop business owned by the family of Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam and his brother, Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam.

A spokeswoman for Pilot Flying J, the truck stop business owned by the family of Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam and his brother, Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam, says the FBI has locked down the company's Knoxville headquarters.

Spokeswoman Lauren Christ said in a statement the company doesn't know why FBI officials closed the headquarters Monday but is cooperating with authorities.

The FBI didn't immediately respond to Associated Press requests for details. A Pilot spokeswoman said she might release information later.

Jimmy Haslam stepped down as CEO after he purchased the football team last summer. But he resumed the position in February, replacing former PepsiCo President John Compton.

Bill Haslam has no position with the company but still has an unspecified holding in it, according to his limited financial disclosures.

Pilot Flying J retail operations remain open.
