Paving scam is investigated
Cocke County authorities are investigating an alleged scam by a driveway paving firm. Timothy Bryant told Deputy Jerry Vandergriff that a male identifying himself as Liger Grady offered to pave the driveway of the home of Bryant’s mother. The pavers reportedly told Faye Lawson, Waxwing Road, Bybee, that they would use paving left over from another job and the cost would be $200 to $300. But after the job was completed by the firm, Affordable Driveways, Grady reportedly demanded payment of $3,600. The 72 year-old Lawson told the men she didn’t have the money to pay them. At that point she was reportedly threatened with the seizure of her home, and another man associated with the project reportedly made additional threats causing Ms. Lawson’s to fear for her safety. Bryant told investigators that his mother is not capable of entering into contractual agreements. Authorities now are investigating the alleged harassment on the part of company representatives.
