Lawrence sheriff agrees to pretrial diversion

LAWRENCEBURG, Tenn. (AP) -- Lawrence County Sheriff Kenneth Taylor has agreed to pretrial diversion, effectively ending his prosecution for allegedly interfering with a traffic stop.

Taylor was indicted in March after a three-month investigation, accused of interfering with a traffic stop of a nephew in Lawrenceburg last December.

District Attorney General Mike Bottoms said he felt pretrial diversion was the best way to resolve the matter fairly.

The charges will be dropped if Taylor stays out of trouble for a year.
