Alabama Councilman Arrested After Threatening Barbershop With Confederate Flag Outside Business
Earlier this month Anniston, Alabama Council member David Reddick stopped by Ford`s Barbershop on Leatherwood Road on the western outskirt of Anniston and demanded owner Milton Ford take down the Confederate Battle flag outside his shop.
Of course, owner Ford refused. That’s when Reddick started threatening the owner with what he would do to him for flying the Confederate flag at his own business and on his own property.
Reddick was later arrested.
My FOX AL reported:
Council member David Reddick was booked into the Calhoun County Jail Thursday, after turning himself in on a misdemeanor charge of harassment. Sheriff Larry Amerson confirms Reddick was arrested on a warrant sought through the county district attorney’s office, by Milton Ford.
Amerson says Reddick was released on a $500 bond.
The arrest apparently stems from an incident a few weeks ago in which Reddick and Ford had a conversation at Ford’s Barbershop on Bynum-Leatherwood Road. At the time, witnesses told Fox6 News via email and Facebook, Reddick appeared to be warning Ford that city officials would force him to remove a Confederate flag that waves in front of Ford’s business if Ford didn’t take it down himself.
