A decision on Randy Bailey's future as Hope Town Marshal may be discussed tonight during the Hope Town Council's meeting, which gets underway at 7. That's according to our news gathering partners at "The Republic."
The paper reports Bailey was arrested Aug. 19 on a felony count of official misconduct and a misdemeanor count of false informing for making untrue accusations about a May 24 incident that led to the arrest of 49-year-old Anthony Paul of Hope.
An official report written by Bailey accused Paul of threatening the marshal’s life at Bailey’s home and refusing to leave his property. However, an audio recording made by Paul of the encounter showed no such threat was made and no refusal was made by Paul to leave Bailey’s home, Bartholomew County Sheriff Mark Gorbett outlined in a probable-cause affidavit.
