OAK RIDGE, Tenn. (AP) - Three men are charged with promoting gambling after Oak Ridge police discovered card games in a building owned by a local judge.

Interim Oak Ridge City Judge Lawrence Tunnell told the Knoxville News Sentinel (http://bit.ly/143xyy2) he evicted the tenants after he learned of the raid. Tunnell says he had no idea there was gambling going on in the building.

Oak Ridge police arrested 35-year-old Scott William Stockstill, of Clinton, on felony promotion of gambling charges after executing a search warrant on the building on Sunday. He is free on $5,000 bond. A phone number for Stockstill appeared to be disconnected.

Jeffery Ray Smith of Kingston and William Harold Bailey of Clinton were cited with misdemeanor gambling promotion.
