Columbus, Gs (WTVM)- The crowd outside of Hogansville City Hall grew and grew as the city council called a special meeting with one thing on the agenda; Police Chief Guy Spradlin.

The council is stepping in to possibly fire Spradlin after allegations from Tonya Neese, a police dispatche.

Neese accuses Chief Spradlin of not only firing her without cause and without prior warnings, but sending her sexually suggestive text messages on her cell phone from his city-issued phone.

Neese, also says Spradlin even sent her one racial text message, bad-mouthing the NAACP.

News Leader Nine went inside the meeting. The mayor called for an executive session, closing the meeting off to the public.

After the meeting no announcement was made. We asked the Mayor if any action had been taken against the chief.

"This meeting was called to order for personnel matters and we immediately went into executive session and no content from the executive session can be discussed. We can't discuss anything," says Mayor Jimmy Jackson.

The police chief debacle is the talk of the town in Hogansville and even after the meeting, many residents say they are left with a lot of unanswered questions.

When News Leader Nine asked Spradlin about the allegations, he referred us to his attorney who himself had no clue why the city council would even contemplate firing his client.

"I haven't been informed of any allegations as of right now the city hasn't informed me of anything. He's still at work and there has been no action taken against him as far as I know, he's still the police chief," added John Rasnick.
