Hubbard preparing for possible arrest

OPELIKA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama House Speaker Mike Hubbard is getting ready for his possible arrest in a state corruption probe.

Lee County records show Hubbard and his lawyer visited the sheriff's office in Opelika on Friday.

Defense attorney Mark White said Monday they went to the sheriff's office to provide paperwork so Hubbard could be released on bond as quickly as possible if arrested.

White says prosecutors have indicated they won't let the prominent Republican surrender if he is indicted by a grand jury, meaning officers would likely go arrest him.

A special grand jury has been meeting on and off in Hubbard's home of Lee County for over a year.

Hubbard said last week he's done nothing wrong. He calls the investigation a witch hunt.
