Bloodworth was charged in September 2019 with 31 falsification of crimes for illegally towing and storing cars. All of these charges were dropped in December 2020 after court documents revealed that Bloodworth had a partial recording of a phone call with KCPD Sgt.Brad Lemon.

During the phone conversation, Lemon threatened Bloodworth with police operations for not releasing a car belonging to a Lemon family member.

Bloodworth’s attorney said the call came just prior to the execution of a search warrant on his client who had property confiscated and Bloodworth’s dog allegedly shot.

“I have no idea what kind of dynamics or investigation would have been conducted or what the results would have been,” said attorney Dan Ross. “It is only after the conversation with Mr. Lemon is recorded that I know that really bad things have happened to my client.”
