MARYVILLE, TN – In one of the more bizarre things, you will ever see General Sessions Judge Robert L. Headrick
turned into the male version of the late Leona Helmsley and was the King of Mean on Wednesday in Court in Maryville.
Your Honor was definitely not “this guy”
.A hearing was on the docket Wednesday at 9:00 a.m. to decide what misbehaving, if any, that Jack Heffington may have done with in his dealings with Assistant District Attorney General Ellen Berez, and to discuss the orderly return of the horses to the owners. The horses were seized in an April 25, 2013 when agents took custody of them because of their condition.
To the shock of those present, Judge Headrick announced there would be NO hearing of any kind, and the horses would be returned by Friday or the Assistant D.A. Berez and SPCA official would go to jail for contempt of court.
Then District Attorney General Mike FLynn ordered his employee Ellen Berez to sign the Order:
So Judge Headrick apparently doesn’t get this:
Informed sources say that the HSUS presently has spent over $90,000.00 to take care of the 19 horses. Other sources say the horses in custody don’t match up with the papers and it’s going to be a huge job trying to get it all straight.
What a grand and glorious mess!!!
