Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam, who is also the CEO of Pilot Flying J, saw the headquarters of his truck stop business taken over by the FBI, with all employees told to leave the building on Monday afternoon. Knoxnews.com had the latest news on the story, relaying that the FBI called it part of an "ongoing investigation." The news source also had a statement that Haslam released via email:
"The FBI secured our headquarters today and informed us they are investigating Pilot Flying J. We will cooperate appropriately with any and all external investigations and conduct our own. I believe and trust there has been no wrongdoing. The integrity of our company always has been job number one."
Neal Gulkis of the Browns public relations department said that the organization had no comment on the matter at this time. We'll have more details as they come along, but this is a very bizarre story to say the least.
