Spanish Fort mayor issues statement on harassment charge


SPANISH FORT, Ala. (WKRG) — Spanish Fort Mayor Michael McMillan has released the following statement on his harassment charge:

I want to thank everyone for the tremendous outpouring of support I have received since these charges were brought. I look forward to my day in court where all the evidence will come forth, and the truth will be borne out. I am proud to have served the people of this community for 17 years on the Planning Commission, City Council and as Mayor. I am satisifed that , after a full and fair hearing, the allegations against me will be disproved, and I will be exonerated.

Michael McMillan, Spanish Fort mayor

McMillan turned himself in on the charge last week, after Lyndsey Cooper, the city magistrate, claimed he slapped her in the face.

City Attorney David Conner says city hall is trying to get back to business-as-usual, but certain measures are being taken to make sure McMillan and cooper don’t interact with each other – per authorities’ orders.

“Like you mentioned it is a small office, that’s something we’ve got to deal with. I mean there’s certainly gonna have to be some changes around me to make sure there’s no violation of the restrictions that have been placed,” he said.

McMillian is due in court Dec. 19.
