Former Alabama state Sen. Phil Poole and his brother, Bank of Moundville president Howell Poole, were charged with harassment after a fight Thursday night.
Moundville Police charged both men after they were involved in a dispute in the parking lot of the Bank of Moundville, Police Chief Ken Robertson confirmed Friday.
Officers were called to the bank at 6:22 p.m.
“Upon arrival, officers discovered that Victor Poole Jr. and Price Howell Poole were involved in a confrontation that stemmed from an earlier dispute,” Robertson said.
Phil Poole, 52, and Howell Poole, 50, were each charged with misdemeanor harassment and released from custody shortly after on $500 bonds.
The dispute between the men was physical and verbal. Robertson didn’t say what it stemmed from.
