City vehicle case is closed

Seven weeks after being handed a case to investigate whether or not Blountstown City Manager James Woods’ city vehicle was driven by one of his children without his knowledge, the State Attorney’s Office has closed the case. According to the report issued last week by Assistant State Attorney Bob Pell, Blountstown Police Chief Glenn Kimbrel requested the State Attorney investigate possible criminal conduct after the teen and juvenile passenger were stopped in November by a BPD officer. The driver said Woods had given permission to take the vehicle; Woods insisted he had not. “Given the conflicting statements, there is insufficient evidence to charge a crime in this case,” Pell concluded in his report.
