Disguise Fails To Work For Man Driving Illegally


Authorities say a 62-year-old Cookeville man, whose driver license has been revoked, is apparently trying to disguise himself from police by wearing a woman's wig. The sheriff's department says Marion Edward Peden of South Washington Avenue was seen driving a white Lincoln Town Car on Jefferson Avenue near Kroger and, according to the report, "Mr. Peden appeared to be wearing a woman's wig on his head." But officers say they had already received information about his alleged disguise and also about the kind of car he would be driving. Peden was ultimatel stopped at the intersection of Stevens Street and Walnut Avenue and charged with driving on a revoked license. Authorities say he has been arrested before on the same charge.
