Eddie Bruce Overholt, of Cocke County, protests as he is removed from a July 18, 2014, meeting of the Greene County Industrial Development Board (IDB) by a Greeneville police officer after Overholt spoke out following a warning from Greene County Mayor Alan Broyles. Broyles, the chairman of the IDB, had just warned that anyone who spoke out at the noisy meeting following his caution statement to the audience would be removed from the room. Overholt then spoke up to ask that the board members talk loudly enough to be heard by the audience. He was eventually charged with disrupting a meeting.
