MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Bayou La Batre interim mayor Ida Mae Coleman said Tuesday, July 2, there is more to the story behind her being disqualified from running in the upcoming election for mayor.
Speaking through the partial closed door of her home Coleman said a news conference was being organized by the NAACP to explain.
On Monday, July 2, a circuit judge ruled Coleman's name would not appear on the August 2013 Ballot to replace former Mayor Stan Wright, who was convicted of stealing federal money and witness retaliation.
Probate Judge Don Davis initiated the complaint against Coleman stating, she did not submit the necessary paperwork on time.
Coleman did tell FOX10 News Reporter Renee Dials, she had someone from the police department drive her to the court hearing on Monday.
Coleman said she made two trips to Mobile for the hearing.
The first time she said she drove her personal car, but went to the wrong courtroom. When she returned to her house she received a call on the correct location of the hearing.
That's when Coleman said she went to the police station to get a ride back to Mobile.
Renee Dials will have the details on what happened and what's next for Coleman at 5 p.m.
