Anniston City Councilman John Spain has been arrested again. This time, it's for violating the Council-Manager Act, according to Calhoun County Chief Deputy Matthew Wade. Spain apparently gave a direct order to an Anniston police captain while the Anniston police chief was out of town, which is illegal.
Spain is currently being held in the Calhoun County Jail.
Spain previously spent time in the Anniston City Jail following his arrest for getting into a fight with Anniston Mayor Gene Robinson in September. Spain was charged with third degree assault in October and is in the process of appealing that charge.
