Roscoe Tanner charged with grand theft auto
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP)—Former tennis star Roscoe Tanner has been arraigned on felony theft charges in Knox County.
According to information from the Knox County General Sessions Court, Tanner is accused of writing a $72,263.43 check to a Knoxville Toyota dealership for two Toyota Highlanders and refusing to return the vehicles when the check bounced.
Tanner appeared in court Wednesday for the arraignment but did not enter a plea. A court hearing is set for July 8.
His attorney, Scott Green, did not immediately return a call from The Associated Press seeking comment.
Tanner was convicted of grand theft in Florida in 2000 after bouncing a $35,595 check used to buy a 32-foot boat.
A Chattanooga native, Tanner won the 1977 Australian Open
