Former Rockingham County Commissioner W.L. Pryor charges a Neely Chronicle photographer during a soiree thrown by Economic and Tourism Development at the former Eden Country Club. W.L. threatened to beat the photographer's ass for harshing his mellow.
But, the sad news about W.L. is he has just been convicted of 15 felonies related to gambling. Pryor will have to pay a $15,000 fine and serve 12 months on probation.
Pryor is probably best remembered for lecturing the county's many unemployed for not attending Rockingham Community College.
