Feds seek to revoke celebrity hunter's probation

Posted: Updated:

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - Federal prosecutors want a celebrity hunter from Tennessee to spend three months in jail for violating probation in a Kansas case.

William "Spook" Spann is scheduled to appear at a hearing in federal court Thursday afternoon. Prosecutors are seeking to have his probation revoked in a 2007 case in which he pleaded guilty to transporting unlawfully taken wildlife across state lines.

The 50-year-old Dickson, Tenn., resident owned property in Kansas and bought a deer permit in November 2007, but it allowed him to hunt only on land he owned. He violated state law when he hunted on an adjacent landowner's property, and it became a federal crime when he transported the antlers across state lines.

Spann has a hunting show, "Spook Nation," on the Pursuit Channel.
