A Knoxville motel with a troubled history has been hit with a lawsuit over a gospel singer who was kidnapped, beaten and robbed while staying there, Knoxnews reports. Smyrna-based singer Dennis Humphries was staying at the West Knoxville Motel 6 on June 5 when he was attacked, chased into his room, tied him up in the bathroom and robbed. The lawsuit alleges that hotel security saw the attack and did nothing, and a clerk only called 911 at another guest’s urging but did not go to the room to investigate. The complaint seeks $1 million in damages.
