Lawsuit claims ex-Pine Lawn mayor falsely arrested

St. Louis, MO ( KTRS ) A former mayor of Pine Lawn alleges in a lawsuit that he was falsely arrested as part of a smear campaign orchestrated by his successor.

The American Civil Liberties Union filed suit Tuesday on behalf of  80 yr old Adrian Wright. The lawsuit names Wright’s successor as mayor, Sylvester Caldwell, along with a police officer and the city.

Wright says he was falsely arrested in 2012 on accusations of running a stop sign and failing to yield to an emergency vehicle. Charges were dismissed but Wright says he was re-arrested at least twice.

Caldwell pleaded guilty last week to federal extortion charges. He resigned as mayor and faces sentencing July 7.
