Tennessee to expand mental health outreach to reduce arrests

The state of Tennessee has announced that it has received a $75,000 federal grant to develop a plan to expand the Crisis Intervention Team program across the state.

Who are these people? According to a recent study, they are middle-aged women.

Former Memphis Grizzlies star facing reduced drug charge

He's a King now, but for years Zach Randolph ruled the basketball court in Memphis.

The seat of Henry County recently had a grand jury indict a man on 16 criminal charges ranging from alleged drug crimes to a slew of traffic violations.
