Selma City Councilman Turns Himself In to Police
Selma City Councilman Sam Randolph turned himself in to police this morning and is now out on bail after a warrant was issued for his arrest.
Randolph was charged with public lewdness for allegedly relieving himself on a city street.
Randolph says he didn’t do it and the charge is purely political.
He says the charge is an attempt to try and assassinate his character because he’s been a vocal critic of the mayor and the police chief.
“The police force have a lot of pressing issues going on in Selma, such as robberies, murders, breaking in people’s houses than to be after me with a trumped up charge of relieving myself on the street,” said Randolph.
“Why would I relieve myself on the street and I’m up the street from my house?”
Randolph is free on bail.
A court date has been set in the case for May 22nd.
