FALL RIVER — Bristol District Attorney Sam Sutter has appointed a special prosecutor to investigate whether Fall River Mayor William Flanagan used a gun to intimidate a city councilor.
Sutter says former state and federal prosecutor William Connolly will look into the allegation.
City Councilor Jasiel Correia II has accused Flanagan of trying to intimidate him by showing him a gun during a ride in the mayor’s vehicle last month, after Correia signed a petition seeking the mayor’s recall.
Apparently it’s a case of “my gun is bigger.”
