ORANGE BEACH, Ala. (AP) – An Alabama mayor who’s seeking a seat on the utility-regulating Public Service Commission was jailed on a charge of domestic violence.

Records show Tallassee Mayor John Randal Hammock was in the Baldwin County Jail with bail set at $20,000 following his arrest Saturday morning by Orange Beach police on a charge of domestic violence with strangulation.

A booking photo showed he had what appeared to be a black eye.

Court records weren’t available to provide details on the case or show whether Hammock has a lawyer who could speak on his behalf.
