In-Depth: Embattled City Councilwoman Stephanie Brinkerhoff-Riley Live with Brad Byrd

- Evansville City Councilwoman Stephanie Brinkerhoff-Riley is accused of sending out threats on social media.

Her former campaign chairman, Alex Jarvis, filed an incident report with Evansville Police and a protective order against Brinkerhoff-Riley. This comes after Brinkerhoff-Riley allegedly posted on Facebook last night, calling Jarvis a series of expletives and making threats to his life.

Hours after Jarvis filed the protective order, Brinkerhoff-Riley admitted on Facebook that she suffers with alcoholism and relapsed earlier this year.

Today, Democratic Party Chairman, Rob Faulkner sent Brinkerhoff-Riley a letter saying he's removing her from her 3rd Ward leadership position in part because of these reported threats. However, it does not affect her position on city council.

In a special Eyewitness In-Depth, Brad Byrd sits down with Stephanie Brinkerhoff-Riley to discuss her issues with alcoholism, her posts towards Alex Jarvis, and if she would resign from city council.
