CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) - Hamilton County Sheriff Jim Hammond has asked the TBI to look into whether he violated procedure by giving a car back to its owner.
It had been seized in a drug arrest of the woman's son.

Hammond says he doesn't remember the woman.
He says there was a paperwork error, which will be corrected.
