UPDATE: Man who asked to pay Register of Deeds office in GOLD asked to be addressed as King

For the second time in a two week window, a man has entered the Rutherford County Register of Deed’s office in Murfreesboro asking to pay for services in gold. Nothing illegal has occurred, the incidents are being recorded as a "Matter of Record." 

On Wednesday, the subject walked into the office requesting to have two documents printed that were titled, “Judicial Notice and Proclamation.” The incident report states that problems arose when the man asked to pay for the printings with gold bars. Heather Dawbarn, the Register of Deed’s, told the man they only accepted cash or check. This again was the second time the man has been in the office asking to pay for services in gold.

While in the office on Wednesday, the man allegedly requested that Mrs. Dawbarn address him as “King” and not “Sir.” He also asked that she type his name on all paperwork in CAPS only. The report that WGNS obtained on Thursday shows that he told her that he could not be taxed, just before leaving the office when he realized his requests would not be met.

The MPD report on file at the police headquarters in Murfreesboro shows that the man may is possibly a sovereign citizen. That thought is based on the terminology in his paperwork. Self-described sovereign citizens take the position that they are answerable only to common law and are not subject to any statutes or proceedings at the federal, state, or municipal levels, or that they do not recognize U.S. currency and that they are "free of any legal constraints"

The subject evidently caused the staff to become concerned for their safety, therefore two reports have been filed as a matter of record.
