Police actions draw scrutiny



May 15, 2012 - 12:00 AM

The controversy surrounding the arrest of Iolan Bill Farmer continued Monday as Farmer, his daughter and other Iolans spoke about police behavior.

Farmer was arrested for suspicion of disorderly conduct and obstructing the legal process April 14 after he called 911 on behalf of his neighbor, Tim Emmons, who had fallen from his roof.

Those charges were dropped, and Mayor Bill Shirley formally apologized to Farmer after a subsequent review of the incident by Sheriff Tom Williams.
