Tesla shares hit by criminal probe report

You'll have to pay more for this red coat of paint

Despite this, the complaints continued, so on Sunday Musk responded with a tweet about how Tesla's priorities are shifting; the fix wait complaint inspired the CEO to counter the issue with in-house body shops equipped with an adequate stock of parts, expert Tesla mechanics, and certified equipment.

Unsworth was publicly critical of Musk's attempts to involve himself in the rescue using a purpose-built miniature submarine, which Unsworth described as having "absolutely no chance of working".

Musk's maverick image is another factor behind Tesla's fortunes, for good and for ill: His outspokenness, technical acumen and geeky charm have attracted legions of dedicated fans and customers.

The documents said a separate lawsuit would be filed in England although it is as yet not known when he will do so.

Unsworth said he is not a pedophile, child rapist, child sex trafficker, husband of a 12-year-old bride, or liar, and that the defamatory statements "were manufactured out of whole cloth by Musk" because of the disagreement over the mini-submarine.

Vernon Unsworth claims Musk falsely accused him on Twitter of being a paedophile.

Mr Unsworth, who is a renowned diver and knew the cave system well, holds Mr Musk "legally accountable for his wrongdoing and to vindicate his reputation", they add.

Florence death toll rises to 32 as floodwaters linger in North Carolina
You may remember as Florence roared to North Carolina, Tropical storm Isaac kept its name through an identity crisis. State officials also were monitoring the ongoing threat from the breach of a coal ash landfill near Wilmington .

Following this back-and-forth, Musk tweeted that he would post a video to prove that submarine would work, and ended it with: "Sorry pedo guy, you really did ask for it".

The 47-year-old billionaire, who earlier this month faced investor ire over smoking marijuana on a live web show, has indicated in the past that Tesla's customers may face a longer response time because of a significant increase in vehicle delivery volume in North America.

Musk called Unsworth a "pedo" in a tweet to his 22.5 million followers after Unsworth criticized Musk in a July 13 television interview with CNN about the rescue.

Mr Musk startled the financial world in August when he announced on Twitter that he was considering taking the company private, sending the shares surging temporarily.

The row between the pair started as a result of Mr Unsworth criticising Mr Musk's decision to bring a tube to the cave system which the Space X designer said could carry the boys out of the caves. "He was offered free legal services".

This is according to reports from Bloomberg, citing two people familiar with the matter.

"Together with Mr Unsworth, Mr Harper, Mr Volanthen, and Mr Stanton put together the dive portion of the rescue plan that ultimately saved the boys", the lawsuit said.
