As a result of a dispute with a neighbor, town councilman Otis Scott appeared before the judge in the Powdersville Summary Court last week, Scott, who currently serves on the Williamston Town Council as the Ward Four representative, has been charged with malicious damage to real property.
On October 2, Anderson County Sheriff’s Deputy B.S. Chandler received a telephone complaint from Daniel Keeler who once resided at 5 A Street in Williamston. Scott lives at 4 A Street. Keeler, who, according to the incident report on file at the ACSO, now lives in Forney Texas, but still owns the residence on A Street, complained that Scott had sent him an e-mail, telling him that on September 27 he had removed Keeler’s mailbox; which Scott claimed was on his property, and had placed it on Keeler’s front porch.
