As the world turns ... in Colwyn

My how the tables have turned down in tiny Colwyn.

It was just Sunday that Director of Public Safety Rochelle Bilal was being hauled into court to answer charges of theft and receiving stolen property filed against her and a police clerk by one of her own borough officers.

That didn't last long. Yesterday District Attorney Jack Whelan withdrew the charges, saying his office found no probable cause for the case filed by Officer Trevor Parham. You can read all those details here.

Last night borough council moved to fire Parham.

It's not Parham's first legal dustup. You might remember he was at the center of a case in which he was charged with using a Taser on a teen in a borough holding cell. He was acquitted of those charges.

Yesterday, after Whelan's ruling, Parham alleged the D.A. has a vendetta against him.

Funny, that's exactly what Bilal and her attorney were saying abour Parham.

What a town. We'll have an update with the latest from the Colwyn soap opera, including all the action at last night's council meeting.
