Center Stage reacts to arrests of leaders

DOTHAN, AL (WSFA) -

An attorney representing the development group behind Dothan's Center Stage entertainment complext is reacting to Tuesday's news that two of the center's executives were arrested on drug possession charges.

Attorney M. Adam Jones said the company has performed a diligent investigation of the allegations agaist CEO Jeff Rubin and VP of Operations Mike Kneuer and "is satisfied that neither of its employees has committed wrongdoing of anykind."

Jones said Rubin's arrest after Houston County Sheriff's Deputies discovered a Xanax pill can be explained. He said the pill belonged to Rubin's girlfriend and was obtained by prescription from her doctor.

Jones said the company's investigation of Kneuer's marijuana possession arrest also ended with his innocence, though he didn't explain exactly how that determination was reached.

Authorities found the marijuana in the complex's Possum Holler bed and breakfast where both men live.

A more serious accusation by Houston County Sheriff's Department involves the discovery of what is believed to be GHB, commonly referred to as the date rape drug. Jones said analysis will show that it's actually a bottle of vodka.

The group behind Center Stage, RDG, II LLC. says both men have offered to temporarily step aside to avoid distractions for the company, but "The company has insisted [they] remain at their positions."
