RANSON, W.Va. - A Harpers Ferry, W.Va., man filed a lawsuit in Jefferson County Circuit Court last week claiming he was wrongly pulled over and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol.
The lawsuit by John I. Williams seeks an unspecified amount in damages against Cpl. Brian Mason and the Ranson town government.
Chief William Roper declined to comment on the legal action, saying he had not been served with the papers yet.
According to the suit, Williams was pulled over on Sept. 19, 1996, for allegedly making a right turn without using a turn signal.
