Case Against Councilman Dismissed


Charges against Anniston City Councilman David Reddick were dropped and his case dismissed by a Calhoun County District judge. Reddick was arrested in July 2015 and charged with harassment. A dispute between Reddick and Milton Ford – the owner of a barbershop on Bynum Leatherwood Road – was the reason for the arrest. Ford said the councilman in a visit to the shop demanded he remove a Confederate flag from the front of his business. Ford said Reddick told him his business might face repercussions for not taking the flag down. Reddick’s attorney Ron Allen says the case was dismissed by the judge on her order because the allegations didn’t rise to the level of harassment.
