Prison Drug-dealing Charge Scuttles Plea Deal for Memphis Underling of International Drug Kingpin Craig Petties
As reported by Beth Warren here in the Commercial Appeal:
Collierville resident Vacha Vaughn escaped two murder plots against him by one of the largest and most deadly cocaine trafficking rings in Tennessee history.
His closest call was on July, 26, 2004, when two drug thieves posing as police signaled him to pull over in his Chevrolet Avalanche. When Vaughn got out of the vehicle, the men peppered him with bullets, critically injuring him.
Vaughn's boss, international drug lord and multimillionaire Craig Petties, later began to mistrust Vaughn and put his own hit on Vaughn's life, but federal agents learned of the plot and intervened.
