The Mayor of Hearne has had his day in municipal court.
Mayor Milton Johnson pleaded no contest Wednesday afternoon to disorderly conduct and failure to identify. He received 90 days deferred adjudication, plus a $200 fine for each charge. Johnson opted to complete community service hours instead of paying one of the fines.
The two charges stem from a December incident with police.
Johnson allegedly screamed at officers for pulling him over for running a stop sign. The mayor was also given a warning for the traffic violation and was charged for evading arrest, but that charge was dropped.
