Anytime the FBI raid and lockdown your offices, that isn’t a good thing. Especially, if you are an owner of a NFL team. Jimmy Haslam released a statement, in essence saying this was a big misunderstanding.
“The FBI secured our headquarters today and informed us they are investigating Pilot Flying J,” Haslam said in an email statement to the Knoxville News Sentinel. “We will cooperate appropriately with any and all external investigations and conduct our own. I believe and trust there has been no wrongdoing. The integrity of our company always has been job No. 1.”
No word on what the FBI was looking for, but if there were dozens of agents on the scene. The FBI hasn’t commented on the raid as of yet and no arrests have been made.
