A routine traffic stop landed a Tennessee couple behind bars Wednesday for allegedly trying to have sex with a 17-year-old girl.
Police pulled over Michael McCarrell, 46, in Nashville for failing to use his turn signal, only to discover a teenaged girl sitting between the driver and his 27-year-old wife, Amanda McCarrell.
The couple, who reside in Crossville, Tennessee, told investigators they had met the minor on an online dating site and had picked her up in Glasgow, Kentucky.
According to Mr McCarrell, he initially thought the girl was 18 years old and only realized that she was underage as they were driving from Kentucky to Tennessee, his arrest warrant cited by The Tennessean states.
His wife, Amanda McCarell, allegedly admitted to police that she had planned to have sex with the 17-year-old.
In describing himself, Michael McCarrell wrote on his Facebook page: ‘just looking to have fun n enjoy life to is fulls [sic].’
McCarrell’s young wife, who graduated from Bledsoe County High School in 2004, also wrote that she ‘likes to have fun.’
The sad part is, had these folks just listened to Uncle Merv
, they've have know that they would have been safe had they gotten a motel in Kentucky.
