No decision on Spates


By Alton Mitchell
Lanett’s Police Chief,
Angie Spates remains
on paid administrative
leave for reason that still
remains unknown. As
many thought that the
Lanett City Council would
discuss the administrative
leave during its Monday
night meeting, no action
was taken.
Lanett officials have
not announced the cir-
cumstances surrounding
he paid leave of Chief
Spates. However, infor-
mation released Monday
does state that Chief
Spates has requested a
meeting with Lanett’s
Mayor. Lanett Mayor
Kyle McCoy has agreed
to grant the meeting at a
later date.
While the administra-
tive leave is still ongoing
Major Johnny Woods of
the Lanett Police Depart-
ment has been named as
Acting Police Chief for
the city of Lanett.
