ST. CLAIR COUNTY, Ala. – An Alabama police chief who was fired after his arrest on drug charges is now accused of rape and incest.

Al.com reported that Brian “Scott” Martin was indicted Dec. 6 in St. Clair County on charges of sodomy, rape, incest and distributing an illegal substance to a minor. He was indicted by the grand jury of St. Clair County.

According to the four-count indictment, Martin engaged in sexual intercourse and deviate sexual intercourse with a relative incapable of consent by reason of being physically helpless or mentally incapacitated. The indictment gives the date or dates, but stated Martin provided an illegal substance to the juvenile victim on July 17, 2018.

The former chief of Lipscomb was taken into custody on Dec. 21 when Pell City police arrested him for a DUI after almost hitting an officer’s patrol vehicle. According to court records, Martin blew a 0.11 on the breathalyzer.

He was booked into the St. Clair County Jail and later served with the felony indictments. His bond was set at $100,000 but jail officials said he’s no longer in custody.

Martin on Monday denied the allegations to AL.com. “All of that stuff is not true,’’ Martin said. “I’m just going to battle it out in court. That’s all I can do.”

Martin was originally charged with two misdemeanors after police found marijuana and two bongs in his patrol car in July. As a result, he was fired the following month.

Lipscomb is a small town in western Jefferson County. It is part of the Birmingham, Alabama, metropolitan area. At the 2010 census the population was 2,210.
