Secret recordings of former Pilot Flying J President Mark Hazelwood featured derogatory comments, including racial epithets, Knoxnews reported from trial testimony yesterday. Hazelwood was recorded secretly at a meeting for company executives in 2012. On the recordings played for jurors, he was heard requesting an explicitly racist song, and singing along to the words with his colleagues. Hazelwood and other executives are on trial for wire fraud and conspiracy charges in connection with a scheme to rip off smaller trucking companies.
