UPDATE: Man Claiming To Be Fugitive Calls WHNT Newsroom

LINCOLN COUNTY, Tenn. (WHNT) – The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Department is looking for a man wanted for aggravated kidnapping and aggravated robbery in Tennessee.

Investigators say they have been looking for Scotty Wayne Bolin since Saturday. They allege Bolin met a Remax realtor at a residence on Patrick Rd in the Park City area under the guise of wanting to buy the property when he held her a knife-point and demanded money, according to investigators.

Bolin attempted to make the realtor get into a car to get money. The realtor was able to then escape, according to investigators.

A man claiming to be Scotty Bolin contacted WHNT News 19 Monday morning. Caller ID in the newsroom identified the number as belonging to someone with the name Scotty Bolin. That man told WHNT News 19’s Nick Banaszak, “there is a long story to that,” in regards to the accusations against him.

The man said, “The reason I did what I did is because I was off of my medication for several days.” He claimed to have been off of his medication for a total of four to five days.

He denied holding the realtor at knife-point, but did say, “I got her there under false pretenses, but all I did was try to get money from her.”

“I just grabbed her arm. That’s all I did,” the man claiming to be Bolin said. Bolin later said that he planned on turning himself in, but had not surrendered as of Monday evening.

“I understand there is right and there is wrong, and I understand that what I did was wrong,” said the man.

WHNT immediately contacted the Lincoln County Sheriff with the information obtained in order to assist their investigation.

Bolin may be driving a tan, 2007 Toyota Prius 4 door hatchback, or a silver, 2006 Chevy Equinox.

The Sheriff’s Office urges you to not make contact with Bolin, as he is considered armed and dangerous. If you know where Bolin might be, please contact Investigator James Owen at (931) 433-9821.
