Wednesday afternoon, Cumberland County deputies responded to a report of a disabled vehicle in the roadway on Bat Town Road. They encountered 38-year-old Christine Leann Blevins of Knoxville, who said she had run out of gas. Deputies took her to a nearby gas station to fill her gas can. While en route, they checked her license status; it came back revoked.
Blevins admitted she had driven the car to Bat Town Road, where it ran out of gas; she was charged with driving on a revoked license.
Deputies told her if she wanted to ask a nearby resident for permission to park her vehicle on their property, they wouldn’t have the vehicle towed.
Blevins returned and said the owner had given permission to leave the car.
Afterward, deputies checked with the homeowner, who denied having given permission.
Blevins admitted she hadn’t asked for permission, but was just going to leave a note on the car.
Blevins was placed under $1,000 bond in the Cumberland County jail and is due in court May 13.
