The husband of Dixon, Kentucky Mayor, Linda Frederick, has been cleared of wrongdoing.

76-year-old Jimmy Frederick was charged with assault, terroristic threatening and wanton endangerment, stemming from an incident at a soccer field.

The controversy started when the city commission voted not to charge organizations using the park a fee of $250. A fee which Mayor Linda Frederick says would be used to pay for electricity costs.

Later, the soccer field in the park was rendered unusable when Frederick's husband, Jimmy, admitted to driving a plow through the field.  According to the mayor's office, it was part of routine maintenance, but the soccer league believes it was done intentionally.

Jimmy Frederick was later arrested after a man says he was run over by a tractor Frederick was driving.

After a short trial Monday, a jury cleared Frederick of all charges.  The field at the park has since been repaired.
