An FBI agent has testified that a topless club owner accused of trying to organize the contract killing of a Texas mayor gave the order by saying, "Let's do the mayor. Let's hit him tomorrow."
The testimony Friday came before a federal magistrate ruled that Ryan Walker Grant remain held without bond. Grant is accused of orchestrating a plot against Arlington Mayor Robert Cluck and a city attorney.
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that FBI Special Agent Matthew Wilkins said Grant gave the order to an informant.
An attorney for Grant questioned whether the informant, a convicted felon, had selfish motives. The attorney also said "no overt" actions were taken against Cluck or attorney Tom Brandt.
Authorities say Grant plotted the attack over a dispute about reopening his club.
