South Pittsburg's City Administrator was granted a diversion meaning his charges could be wiped off his record. Sammy Burrows was arrested in November on charges of speeding, reckless driving, resisting arrest, and obstruction.
The arresting officer Sgt. Paul West said Burrows was clocked going 72 in a 35 mile per hour zone. Sgt. West lost his job with the city three days later.
Now the case is being sent to a judge in Grundy County outside of the internal conflict in Marion.
Burrows has until September 18th to stay out of trouble and pay the court about 230 dollars.
Lead is contaminating 68 properties throughout the Southside of Chattanooga, putting residents and especially children at risk for lead poisoning.
