BAY ST. LOUIS, Miss. (AP) - The Bay St. Louis City Council has voted 4 to 3 to hire an attorney to defend a city employee accused of trespassing.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1Jd6boa ) Aaron Whitney, who owns an auto-sales business, filed civil charges in Bay St. Louis Municipal Court against city Building Department employee Greg Farve.

He accused Farve of forcibly entering his business without permission on Oct. 4, when no one was there.

Whitney said Farve pushed open the door, entered and searched the building in an effort to investigate possible zoning violations regarding automotive work.

The council debated the motion to pay for Farve’s attorney for about 15 minutes.

Councilman Doug Seal moved Tuesday for the city to pay for Farve’s legal counsel with a cap of $2,500.
