Where in the World is Chris Tilling Now?


Police are investigating after a north Nashville gas station was robbed at gunpoint early Wednesday morning.  It happened at the Twice Daily’s on Dickerson Pike around 2 a.m.  Metro police told WKRN the suspect was not wearing a disguise when he entered the store, but went into the bathroom and came out with a paper towel over his face.

Authorities said the suspect displayed a gun, demanded money from the clerk before fleeing in a white or silver Ford Focus, possibly driven by someone else.  The suspect was wearing a blue or black hooded sweatshirt with white lettering and a dark baseball cap.

Oh Chris… a paper towel????  And you were in Nashville and didn’t stop by???  Doug Campbell has really bewitched you and turned you against your true friends…  sinner.

Where in the World is Chris Tilling Now?

He’s visiting Yellowstone Park… bless him…

We’ve heard a lot about tourists trying to touch wildlife at Yellowstone National Park but this story takes personal encounters with animals a bit further.  Karen Richardson of Victor, Idaho, was one of several parents chaperoning a group of fifth-graders on a field trip to Yellowstone this week. Richardson says on Monday, as students were being taught at Lamar Buffalo Ranch, a father and son pulled up at the ranger station with a bison calf in their SUV.

“They were demanding to speak with a ranger,” Richardson tells “They were seriously worried that the calf was freezing and dying.”  Rob Heusevelet, a father of a student, told the men to remove the bison from their car and warned they could be in trouble for having the animal.  “They didn’t care,” Heusevelet says. “They sincerely thought they were doing a service and helping that calf by trying to save it from the cold.”

Oh Chris- Bison live outside… bless your Brit-Heart…
