MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -- State Representative Alvin Holmes (D-Montgomery) says someone may be after him.

Holmes says he and members of the legislative council had a maintenance employee fired this week after Holmes and other lawmakers found out the employee was caught on tape with a bag that was later found to contain drugs.

Now Holmes says he's heard the employee wants to "get even."

Holmes says he's beefed up security around him and his house, and he's contacting state and federal authorities.
