KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A spokeswoman for the truck stop business owned by the family of Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam and his brother, Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam, says the FBI has locked down the company's Knoxville headquarters

Pilot Flying J spokeswoman Lauren Christ says the company does not know why FBI officials "sequestered" the office on Monday, but the company is cooperating with authorities.

The FBI didn't immediately respond to messages from The Associated Press seeking comment. Agents told local media reporters to leave the area.

Jimmy Haslam stepped down as Pilot Flying J CEO after buying the Browns last summer. He resumed the position in February, replacing former PepsiCo President John Compton.

Bill Haslam has no position with the company but still has an unspecified holding in it.

Pilot Flying J retail operations remain open.
