SELMA, Ala. (AP) - An Alabama city councilman has turned himself in on a charge of public lewdness.

WSFA-TV reported Friday that a warrant for Samuel Randolph's arrest was issued Thursday. Randolph represents Selma's Ward 5.

Selma Police Chief Spencer Collier says the charge stems from an April 1 incident in which narcotics officers on a surveillance detail said they witnessed Randolph stop his car, get out, expose himself and urinate on the street.

A patrol officer was sent to make a traffic stop. That officer reported Randolph smelled of alcohol, but didn't test him for sobriety.

The lewdness charge is a misdemeanor.

Mayor Darrio Melton told the station he has no comment at this time.

It's unclear whether Randolph has a lawyer.
