FAIRFIELD, AL (WBRC) -

Former Birmingham mayor Bernard Kincaid surrendered to Fairfield Police last month amid an allegation of harrassment.

Fairfield police aren't releasing a lot of details in this case. Fairfield Police Chief Leon Davis says the alleged victim in this case pursued the warrant. Normally, most of the facts and details come out in court. Police also are not releasing information about the victim in this case.

One of the pages of the incident report shows the alleged situation happened on Saturday, November 3 at Miles College in Fairfield.

The victim in this case filed a report with the Fairfield Police Department two days later claiming Bernard Kincaid harassed her.

A warrant for Kincaid's arrest on the charge of harassment was issued November 19 and on November 21, he turned himself in and was arrested.

There was a court date set on this case last week, but many of the city's attorneys that could have prosecuted this case were out of town. It has now been rescheduled for January.

City magistrate Velma Pickett says more than likely a special prosecutor and judge will be called in to handle this matter due to a potential conflict of interest since the judge and attorneys know Kincaid.

Fox 6 News attempted to contact Kincaid by phone, but as of 5 p.m. those calls had not been returned.
