Democratic Nominee For Ag. Commissioner Charged With Menacing

GLASGOW, Ky. (AP) - The Democratic nominee for state Agriculture
Commissioner was arrested last week and charged with menacing
following an incident with his niece.
Sixty-eight-year-old David Lynn Williams was arrested last
Friday after threatening his niece, Glasgow City Clerk Sheila
Oliver. She told Williams that documents he requested through
Kentucky Open Records Law were not available.
Oliver says Williams accused her of lying and became agitated.
She says that Williams told her if she were a man, he'd knock
her through the door.
Williams admitted that he told Oliver he would hit her if she
was a man.
Williams spent an hour in jail before being released on a
500-dollar unsecured bond.
