Phenix City Mayor Pro-tem Arrested

A local politician is free on bond after being arrested on harassment charges.

Phenix City's Mayor Pro-tem, Ray Bush, voluntarily turned himself in at the Russell County Sheriff's Department last Friday.

An administrative assistant in the city clerk's office accused him of inappropriate touching and offensive comments.

Monday night he spoke with our news partner WTVM.

Bush says, "On the advice of my attorney, he told me not to say anything, but I think everyone who knows me, knows that the truth will come out and when everything is said and done we'll find out that it's just political."

Bush will appear in a Russell County Courtroom on October 11, 2007.
