    I found this on OJ Monday.

    Judging from it I believe they've shut down.

    I met OJ at the old Texaco Truck stop at Colton many years ago, I believe it was just about the time he got in the trucking business. Yes, he had a few fast trucks & they were pretty good looking trucks too. He had one driver who drove a conventional International that I ran with several times, believe it may have been a two tone brown color. Had not though about him in many years, now I wonder what become of him. Its been so long I can't remember his name nor CB handle.

    We had a few trucks that would run pretty good for that day. Back in those days I believe there were several trucking outfits that could be called outlaws! I will refrain from naming them.

    Nashville Trucking has been gone for several years, two of his sons could not keep it going after their father got killed in a wreck in the mid 80's. His youngest son has a trucking company yet just seeing his trucks running up & down the roads these days don't believe I would be interested in driving one of them, they look pretty rough.

    I believe Casey Grimes is banned for life from trucking. He got busted with a couple loads of dope. I heard he had some hot pink trucks that were sure enough fancy! Knew a guy that bought some trailers from Grimes when it when down hill. Lots of lit up Dorsey trailers. Paul Abbott was another outlaw that was pretty big back in the day!

    Owner of Texas Trucking Company Sentenced for Conspiring to Violate Safety Regulations

    "
    WASHINGTON, July 3 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) Office of Inspector General today announced that on Friday, June 20, 1997, James W. "Casey" Grimes III was sentenced to five years probation, including six months house arrest, fined $5,000, and forbidden from working in the trucking industry after pleading guilty in federal court in the Northern District of Texas to charges he conspired to have drivers at this trucking company, Grimes Transportation Co., Inc., falsify their daily logs to hide the fact that they were not complying with federal safety regulations.

    Federal regulations that implement the Motor Carrier Safety Act of 1984 require that track drivers rest for at least 8 consecutive hours after 10 hours of driving. An investigation revealed that Grimes, his wife Paula F. Grimes, and the Grimes' trucking company, conspired to avoid these restrictions by causing the drivers of Grimes' long-haul refrigerator trucks to make false entries in their logs. The drivers were told to enter fewer hours than they actually drove, or to indicate that driving duties were shared with a second "ghost" driver when, in fact, there was only one driver present.


    For having been convicted of a felony violation of federal rest regulations, Grimes could have received a prison term of as much as 18 months. However, the assistant U.S. attorney informed U.S. District Judge Jerry Buchmeyer that Grimes has agreed to cooperate in an investigation of similar offenses by others. Judge Buchmeyer ordered Grimes to serve the first six months of the probation under house arrest, during which Grimes must wear an electronic monitor.


    He also forbade Grimes from being involved in the trucking industry for the duration of the probation. "You are not to be involved in any aspect of interstate or intrastate transportation of cargo or passengers," Judge Buchmeyer stated. Grimes' company also was fined $5,000 and placed on three years probation, with the same restrictions on involvement in the trucking industry.


    In addition, under the terms of the plea agreement filed on Feb. 6, 1997, Paula F. Grimes was placed under the pre-trial diversion program for 18 months. If she completes that period without further violations, her prosecution will be dropped and her record will be expunged. She also is forbidden from working in the trucking industry during that time.


    The investigation was conducted jointly by the DOT Office of Inspector General, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Federal Highway Administration's Office of Motor Carrier Safety. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney David Finn in the office of the United States Attorney for the Northern District of Texas."


    I found this on James W. "Casey" Grimes III. How many others did about the same thing? Many I suppose.


    I know another trucking company owner that was under house arrest for not paying federal taxes in the 90's yet he got bailed out from losing the whole she-bang being bought by another trucking company & now runs with the big boys.
