Former Orange Beach Policeman Faces Sex Charges

BAY MINETTE, Ala. (AP) - A former Orange Beach police sergeant who served as resource officer at south Baldwin elementary schools faces allegations of sexual abuse involving a 17-year-old girl.

36-year-old Anthony Grigsby of Orange Beach surrendered to law officers late Tuesday on a six-count indictment that included charges he took the teen to a wooded area in Gulf Shores on April 11th and allegedly tried to engage in sexual contact with her.

Officials said the incident did not occur on any school grounds or while Grigsby was on duty.

Orange Beach asked Grigsby to leave the force on May 11th. A city official said the request involved a personnel issue separate from the criminal charges.

Grigsby was released from the Baldwin County Corrections Center Wednesday on a 10-thousand dollar bond.
