Documents State Former City Supervisor Hit Employee With Belt, Former Commissioner Allegedly Had Knowledge of Cemetery Bribery
During last Monday’s City Commission meeting, two packets that were given to the members on the commission were mentioned during a discussion regarding a personnel issue, which was brought up by Commissioner Olivia Pearson. The Enterprise obtained a copy of both packets, which included documents regarding cases dealing with former city employees/supervisors, Britt Leverette, Gregory Nugent, and Henry Milhollin, who were arrested within the last few months.
The documents state that former City Cemetery Manager Henry Milhollin, who was arrested on bribery charges, claimed that former city commissioner Ronnie Anderson (whom is said to have worked for Bailey Monument at the time) allegedly knew about the bribery while it was occurring. The documents also give detailed information regarding the two employees, Leverette and Nugent, who were arrested in June for allegedly abusing two city employees, including a statement from a witness claiming he saw Leverette hit another employee with a belt and squeezed him so tight the employee’s “eyes bulged out.”
For the full story and more details, pick up a copy of The Douglas Enterprise on Wednesday.
