KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - FBI agents have blocked the entrance at the Knoxville headquarters of Pilot Flying J, the truck stop business owned by the family of Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam and his brother, Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam.

The Knoxville News Sentinel and WBIR-TV reported Monday that FBI agents refused to allow traffic to enter the headquarters grounds, wouldn't answer questions and told reporters to leave.

The FBI didn't immediately respond to Associated Press requests for details. A Pilot spokeswoman said she might release information later.

Jimmy Haslam stepped down as CEO after he purchased the football team last summer. But 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, according to his limited financial disclosures.
