Knox Central’s new incoming coach of the high school basketball team, Wendi Messer, created a buzz and quite a bit of fun Wednesday when she teamed up with Jeff Canady, the school’s athletic director, to hold court in the Knox Board Annex. Wanted posters for local celebrities and politicians were circulated around town. If they failed to turn themselves in, Messer’s deputies (her basketball team) were sent out to “arrest” them.

Jeff Canady played judge and jury, which made him actual executioner when handing out monetary sentences. Bailiff Brandon Hillard and booking officers Madison Hicks and Becky Brown showed no mercy as arrestees were dressed out and pictures were taken. The inmates were then thrown into the cooler.
