KOKOMO, Ind. - The mayor of Kokomo was threatened with contempt of court Tuesday - a threat used to remove pipes around the courthouse.
Judge William Menges sent a sheriff’s deputy to bring Mayor Greg Goodnight to his courtroom, and it was documented by pictures from the Kokomo Perspective.
Menges was concerned with some pipes being used as part of a trail expansion project outside the courthouse.
Goodnight said he was threatened with contempt of court if he did not remove the pipes. The pipes were later removed.
Menges is the same judge who made headlines in 2011 for demanding county commissioners buy him a $4,300 copy machine for his office. The request was denied.
