FBI agents lock down headquarters of Pilot Flying J

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - An FBI spokesman agents have locked down the Knoxville headquarters of Pilot Flying J, the truck stop business owned by the family of Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam and his brother, Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam as part of an ongoing investigation.

FBI spokesman Marshall Stone provided no more details of the investigation or what agents were doing inside the building Monday.

Company spokeswoman Lauren Christ says the company doesn't know why FBI officials closed the headquarters but is cooperating with authorities.

Jimmy Haslam stepped down as company CEO after buying the Browns last summer. He returned as CEO in February, replacing former PepsiCo President John Compton.

Bill Haslam has no position with the company but still has an unspecified holding in it, according to his limited financial disclosures.
