KNOXVILLE - An in-cruiser video camera captured the traffic stop of four University of Tennessee basketball players during which two guns and a bag of pot were found.

"The traffic stop was recorded," Knoxville Police Department spokesman Darrel DeBusk said this morning.

DeBusk, however, declined to say what was on the recording. He also declined to say if the recording confirmed police accounts of the admissions of the players that they knew two 9 mm semiautomatic handguns were in the car and that at least one of them had tried to unload the firearms.

"We wouldn't release that, other than to say we do have the traffic stop on video," DeBusk said.
