Police: Teen says 40 men raped her

ASHLAND CITY, Tenn. (WTVF) — An officer-involved shooting has resulted in the death of a woman in Cheatham County.

The preliminary investigation by TBI Special Agents indicates that overnight a request was made for an ambulance to take an Ashland City woman to the hospital.

The woman, 51-year-old Beth Plant, was being transported from her home to the hospital in the ambulance when she became combative and pulled a knife out of her backpack.

The driver of the ambulance pulled the vehicle over at New Hope Road and Highway 41A and requested the assistance of law enforcement.

When the deputy arrived at the scene, Plant was outside of the ambulance and was brandishing the knife at the deputy.

The deputy then fired at Plant, striking her.

Plant was transported to a Nashville hospital where she died of her injury.

Plant was later identified as the mother of professional boxer and Tennessee native Caleb Plant. On Saturday evening, in a caption of a photo of the two on Instagram, Caleb Plant wrote:

"Love you forever and always momma . You always said “work hard bubba” and I did. I know that we spent a lot of time wishing the relationship we had was different but you was still my momma. We both wished we could start from scratch so we could go back and you could have a fresh start with me and Maddie. Regardless you was one of the sweetest ladies I’ve ever come across. You had your demons but you’d give the shoes off your feet and your last dollar to someone who needed it less than you. I love you momma and I know you are up there with Alia now and her and grandma finally get to spend time together like we talked abt way back. You are the first one out of all of us to see what Alia is really like so make the most of that and kiss her up and tell her that her daddy loves and misses her. I know in the end it’s your demons we always talked abt that got the best of you. Maybe you always told me because you knew I’d understand because we shared some of the same ones but you didn’t deserve for them to do that to you."
