Knoxville, Tennessee Bounty Hunters Charged with Robbery, Assault
ASSOCIATED PRESS



ATHENS, Tenn. (AP) -- Two bounty hunters with a Knoxville bonding company are charged with multiple counts of robbery and assault related to an incident in August.

Benjamin Scott Asbury, 25, and James M. Osborne, 40, of Sanford & Son Bonding Co. are scheduled to be arraigned Oct. 3. Osborne is manager of the company.

Athens police said the men identified themselves as police officers when responding to a home where they said they were investigating a complaint of drinking and loud music.

Asbury and Osborne allegedly escorted several men inside the home and took $1,000 in cash and ID card from a victim.
One of them drew a Glock pistol, witnesses told police.

Witnesses identified the suspects by one of their tattoos, the pistol and the burgundy van they drove, police said. This month a McMinn County grand jury indicted each man with two counts of aggravated robbery and five counts of aggravated assault.

Information from: The Knoxville News Sentinel

Bounty hunters are even bigger scum than tow truck drivers.

Really? Have any good stories? I know that tow truck drivers are scum, but I've had no contact with bounty hunters.

I wonder if they got a discount when they posted bail?

I can`t believe they still let these ppl operate, since they all seem just a notch above the ppl they are after. That "dog" guys show makes Reno 911 look like COPS.

I think there are various levels of Bounty Hunters, from quite professional to "An indictment is not a conviction" types.

Last week I was watching a hotel room that was set up for counterfieting and identity theft. Two parolees showed up, when i contacted them they claimed to be bail enforcement agents. I called the bondsman and he admitted hiring the parolees, but not as bail agents, only as movers. He had sent them to pick up the property in the hotel room which he claimed belonged to one of his clients.

Several years ago, a couple "bounty hunters" kicked in the door to a guy's house in Chandler. When they kicked in his bedroom door, he opened up on them with his pistol. The "bounty hunters" returned fire and killed him and his girlfriend in their bed.

Turned out to be a home invasion robbery.
