Shiles, Bob. "Locklear sends in letter of resignation." St. Pauls Review [St. Paul, NC] July 25, 2017.
Al Locklear has resigned from his seat on the Lumbee Tribal Council. A special election will be held for the seat once the resignation takes effect in January. The Tribal Council stripped him of his council leadership and committee positions. "The sanctions apparently stem from a misdemeanor “battery” conviction in Las Vegas while on tribal business. He also was charged with driving while impaired in South Carolina, but court records show he was guilty of the lesser charge of careless operation of a vehicle” (para.10).
