State Sen. Randy Price, R-Opelika, and his wife, Lee County Revenue Commissioner Oline Price, turned themselves in Monday to the Lee County sheriff’s department. They were arrested on three warrants each for “large animals running at large,” according to Opelika police.
“The charges are from a complaint from a neighbor that was investigated by Opelika Animal Control,” a press release from Opelika police said. “The complaints were then filed with the Opelika Municipal Court and probable cause was found for the warrants to be issued.”
The charges are misdemeanors.
“Today, my wife, Oline, and I responded to a warrant that had been issued against us,” Randy Price said in a statement, according to the Opelika-Auburn News. “A cow that is in our herd got off our property onto the neighbor’s property and the neighbor filed a complaint with the Opelika police department for a cow running at large which is a city ordinance.
“Oline and I have been raising cattle and goats for more than forty years,” he continued. “We are proud to have raised our two sons on this same farm that has been in the family for more than 100 years and if there is one thing, we can tell you as a parent and farmers is that you can’t always control your animals or your children. We are looking forward to resolving this matter.”
Randy Price was first elected to represent District 13 in 2018, won the Republican primary in May, and has no opponent in November’s general election.
On his biography on the Alabama legislature website, Price lists farmer as one of his occupations.
