Suspended over confiscated tickets

A Knox (Tenn.) County Sheriff's Office employee was suspended after he seized tickets from Georgia fans at Neyland Stadium and gave them to other people.

The investigation began after a Georgia woman emailed the University of Tennessee Police Department about tickets to the Oct. 5 Georgia-Tennessee game she said were confiscated.

The Knoxville News Sentinel reported Odell Majors, 49, admitted he did not know department policies regarding confiscated property.

Investigators also found Majors had failed to file a request to work off-duty for the game.

Although Majors was certified as a police officer, he was hired as a counselor in the corrections unit.
