Charges dropped in horse soring case against Blount Co. trainer
News


(WBIR) A Blount county man accused of horse soring is no longer facing charges. The Blount County Circuit Court Clerk confirmed charges against Larry Jo Wheelon were dropped Monday.

In April of 2013, officials searched Wheelon's property and seized 19 horses. Authorities said then they found evidence of soring and the horses were hurt.


A judge earlier this week ruled that search was "tainted."
