Judge Halts Flint Councilman Eric Mays Defense (Breaking)

Mike Killbreath reports that Judge Perry, who is presiding over the trial of Flint Councilman Eric Mays on charges relating to a November 30th incident in which he is alleged to have been driving while impaired, has halted the proceeding.

Mays, who is representing himself, called Johnny Billings to the stand and asked if he was driving on the night of November 30th, 2013.  Judge Perry immediately stopped the proceeding and asked the jury to leave.  He then appointed Attorney Chris Ebbott, who was in attendance, to represent Billings [not Mays, as originally reported] and join the judge in chambers.

Upon returning, Attorney Ebbott advised the court that Mr. Billings would be taking the 5th.


In light of the reported developments, Judge Perry adjourned the proceeding until June 12.  When asked by Mike Killbreath if he had been driving the car involved in the incident, Billings replied:

“I’m a fifth kind of guy.”
