Air Guard general reprimanded over Titans tickets

By Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A Tennessee Air National Guard general has been reprimanded for giving Titans tickets that were bought by the guard to his family and friends.

WSMV-TV obtained an internal investigation from the Air Force inspector general that shows Assistant Adjutant General Don Johnson gave his family and friends tickets to four games last season for a Titans suite. The station says military officials who got the tickets thought they were to be used by military recruits or guard staff.

The investigative report says Johnson used tickets for himself, his wife, his in-laws, his two sons and their girlfriends.

A guard spokesman said Johnson wasn't available for an interview, but in the report he is quoted as saying he is embarrassed. The spokesman said a General Officer Letter of Reprimand by the vice chief of staff of the Air Force was placed in Johnson's official service record.
