The Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission investigated and obtained arrest warrants for three individuals in Murfreesboro. The warrants were later served by the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office this past week (7/21/16). Evidently, the suspects have been accused of illegally selling alcohol and money laundering.

While the Alcoholic Beverage Commission would not confirm or deny the investigation into the three subjects, WGNS found that Lloyd Chisholm, owner of The Wheel Lounge on Broad Street in Murfreesboro, was one of the three apprehended.

Chisholm, age 50, was charged with the storage of liquor for sale, the unlawful sale of alcohol, possession of a gambling device, aggravated gambling promotion and money laundering. According to state laws, “Aggravated Gambling Promotion” is a charge that is filed against an individual who knowingly invest in, manages or participates in a gambling enterprise.

Arrested with Chisholm at The Wheel Lounge near the Discovery Center museum were 29 year old Bunny Crockett and 59 year old Charles Lovvorn. The two are now facing money laundering and unlawful sale of alcohol charges.

Money laundering is a charge that is filed when a suspect knowingly uses proceeds from an illegal activity to conduct a financial transaction with the intent to conceal the source of the proceeds. It is also illegal to use money gained in an illegal activity to further promote that unlawful activity.

All three of the subjects are currently free on bond.
