Columbiana - Alabama attorney Roger Shuler, proprietor and chief writer for the Legal Schnauzer blog, is currently cooling his heels in a Shelby County, Alabama, jail cell after being arrested Thursday night.
He is also nursing a swollen, black left eye that he probably got "bumping into a door knob" while "resisting arrest." He is charged with two counts of contempt of court and one count of resisting arrest.
Mr. Shuler's law blog has lately focused on the alleged extra-marital affairs of Alabama Republican Party bigwig Rob Riley, son of former two-term Governor Bob Riley. As Shuler wrote on October 21:
Alabama Republican Rob Riley has filed a proposed court order that seeks the arrest of my wife and me for reporting here at Legal Schnauzer on Riley's extramarital affair with lobbyist Liberty Duke.
Riley, who reportedly plans to seek the U.S. House seat being vacated by Spencer Bachus, wants two citizens arrested for--get this--practicing journalism.
Shuler has alleged, among other things, that the younger Riley was engaged in an extramarital affair with a (then) married lobbyist, also the alleged extra-marital affair and subsequent divorce of an Alabama Republican operative, who also happens to be the very close friend (she calls him her "mentor" and "best bud") with an Alabama Circuit Court judge and former Alabama Attorney General that Shuler outed on his Legal Schnauzer blog as being involved as a model in a gay porno magazine in his youth.
