Why am I not surprised. I've had no problems dealing with officals in Fentress county except for the county road supervisor. I have never, and I mean never, had to deal with anyone so unprofessional, rude and just plain nasty. Oh yes, and vindictive. I always got the impression that he wanted something more for doing his job from us and I don't say that lightly. I don't mean to offend anyone who is a friend of his, just telling our experiance with him.

NASHVILLE (WATE)-- Fentress County Road Superintendent Fred R. "Butch" Blevins was arrested Thursday after indictments for selling the county's scrap metal and pocketing the proceeds.

Blevins, 56, of Jamestown, was indicted by a grand jury on four counts of theft over $1,000, two counts of theft over $500 and one count of official misconduct.

Blevins is accused of selling scrap metal that belonged to Fentress County and keeping the money for himself.

Investigators say Blevins did this multiple times between December 2007 and May 2008.

The investigation began in February. It was done by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, the state Comptroller's office and the 8th Judicial District Attorney General's office.

Blevins was booked into the Fentress County Jail on a $10,000 bond.

These are the things he got caught doing. How much has he done that he didn't get caught doing? Rancher, I agree that he is the most unprofessional and rude man I have ever talked to in a public office.

The subdivision behind pritchetts junk yard in clarkrange, also the new subdivision on stockton rd there are no homes in either one but they are county paved. It seams that no one cares how much money our county officials waste. There are numerous places like this across our county. Do you think an empty subdivision needs paved worse than the roads we tax payers travel on daily?

He is a power crazed corrupt thief who likes to try and bully as many people as he can by using his position. I know, he tried it with us. I'm glad they caught him. If you are a thief in one area you are bound to steal in another. I believe you Concerned 71. I just hope more of this comes out and the people in office who were looking the other way get investigated and indited too. I am just so sick of corrupt elected officials. How hard is it to just do your job for your pay? What happened to honor and integrity?
