Knox County Juvenile Court building sign misspelled

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) A sign spelling out the Knox County Juvenile Court building had a noticeable error on it Thursday afternoon.

The metal letters that spell out the words were somehow mixed up a little bit. The "U" and the "N" in 'County' were in the wrong spots, and the "N" in 'Juvenile' was upside down.

A viewer sent a picture of the mix-up to Local 8 News. By the time we got to the building after business hours, the letters had been placed into their proper positions.
