Team Driving Nightmare, Woman Says She Was Held Hostage


Woman Claims CoDriver Held Her Against Her WillLast month, we posted an article about how sometimes team driving can be challenging and being stuck together in a confined space for long spans of time can pit even the best of friends against one another.

This week, a Celadon driver says she was held against her will by her team driver after the two got into an argument.

Loria Ann Rogers of Douglasville, Georgia claims that Carl Scott, 64, of LaPlace, Louisiana held her against her will and wouldn’t let her exit the truck.

According to the Cleveland Banner, the incident began in Knoxville and ended in Bradley County, Tennessee on Thursday.

The police report stated that Rogers was forced to email for help after Scott refused to stop the vehicle and let Rogers out.  Rogers said that she was afraid of Scott.

Law enforcement began searching for Rogers and Scott.

Tennessee Deputy John Davis spotted a truck matching the description of Rogers and Scott’s truck driving south on Interstate 75.  Davis pulled over the truck at mile marker 23.

Rogers claims Scott assaulted her after the two got into an argument over driving arrangements.

Scott was arrested and taken to the Bradley County Jail, where he is being held on a $500 bond.
