Here are the major points of a news story that is still developing:
  • The mayor of Mem phis reportedly was cleared Fri day by a grand jury of assaulting a fellow council mem ber. The mayor was arrested last month on charges of assault on a public servant after a heated City Council meeting
  • We ve got some problems in our community here and they don t like me poking around in them, the mayor said.
  • When asked to comment on the accusations against him, the mayor responded, It s a damn lie. The mayor in question is Joe Davis of Memphis, Texas. Had you going there for a minute, didn t we?
