Judge denies Tyson's request to inspect Greenetrack

EUTAW, AL (WBRC) - Alabama state troopers were at Greenetrack earlier to talk to management and to inspect their machines,  but a judge blocked the troopers' effort.

Troopers arrived just before 5pm.

The leader of the governor's task force on illegal gambling, John Tyson, says they were stopped by an order from Circuit Judge Eddie Hardaway, Jr..

John Tyson was not with the troopers at Greenetrack, though he says he will appeal the order to the Alabama Supreme Court.

Senator Bobby Singleton says the state's public safety director talked with Greenetrack officials.
