ALEA Head Placed on Leave
Gov. Robert Bentley is placing the head of Alabama's state law enforcement agency on medical leave. Bentley announced the decision about Alabama Law Enforcement Agency Secretary Spencer Collier on Wednesday. Bentley says his medical leave will last for as long as three months, allowing Collier enough time to recover from what the governor's office describes as an upcoming back surgery. Bentley is appointing Stan Stabler as acting director during Collier's absence.
