Prosecutors say Metro Councilman Loniel Greene lied in court after bailing Tavares Buchanan out of jail. Buchanan was charged with kidnapping and assault. The allegations come three months after Greene was shot and wounded at a Nashville gas station. The Tennessean reports that Assistant District Attorneys Jeff George and Danielle Nellis said in a motion that the money Greene used was not his own and judge cannot be sure the money did not come from criminal acts. Prosecutors also say Greene participated in a scheme to keep Buchanan’s domestic violence victim out of the courtroom.
