Mobile County commissioner turns self in

GULF SHORES, Ala. (AP) - A grand jury has brought impeachment charges against Mobile County Commissioner Stephen Nodine, who turned himself in on drug charges Friday as authorities named him a suspect in the shooting death of Gulf Shores real estate agent Angel Downs.

The Mobile Press-Register reports that Nodine turned himself in at the Mobile County Metro Jail. Authorities had been investigating marijuana found in his pickup truck on Dec. 23. The Mobile County grand jury issued five impeachment charges Friday, including willful neglect of duty and corruption in office.

Nodine is accused of submitting documents for the reimbursement of alcohol purchases in New Orleans, among other things. Baldwin County District Attorney Judy Newcomb also named Nodine the only suspect in the Downs case Friday.

The 45-year-old died Sunday in the driveway of her home from a gunshot wound to the head.
