    If my memory serves me correctly, Angel had filed like 9 restraining orders against Nodine with the most recent being 6 months before she was killed. Officers were called and were present in some instances during his domestic rages but did not arrest him. I, too, hope he rots.

    Nodine Friend Speaks Out

    Nodine Friend Speaks Out by Mel Showers/WKRG Staff Published: Sat, May 29, 2010 - 10:49 pm CST

    MOBILE, Alabama - Mickey Dearmon says the Steve Nodine he knows is simply not capable of murder.

    Dearmon put up Nodine in his home before the former Mobile County Commissioner was booked into the Baldwin County Jail, charged with the murder of Angel Downs.

    Dearmon says he and others are working to raise the bail necessary to get Nodine out of jail.

    But even if Nodine is able to bond out on the murder charge, he'll remain behind bars.

    The U.S. Marshals Service has a hold on Nodine on a firearms charge, so he will have to face a federal judge before he can be released.

    Why No Nodine Background Check? Who is he really?

    Why is it that none of us said anything? By Frances Coleman May 30, 2010, 5:59AM

    I agree with Ms Coleman and I'd like to also ask a few specific questions about Mr. Nodine. I am confused by what Mr Nodine says are his accomplishments. To put it bluntly they're very vague and I believe very exaggerated. For example he has often bragged he was a personal friend and Aide of Alexander Haig - who just passed away this Feb. Here's what was said by Nodine about himself: (my remarks are in red)

    Nodine personal description of self accomplishments
    Graduated in 1981 then joined the US Army where I went to school and still serve as a consultant in the Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Field (HazMat?) After serving my country in West Germany and Central America during the Cold War I started working as a governmental relations officer working with cities and counties throughout the state of Florida. (Jaycee?) I then worked for former Secretary of State Alexander Haig (6 months?) and then worked with the Bush-Quayle Campaign of 1988. In 1990 I help start Connors Nursery which help serve children abused and children with the AIDs virus. (Volunteer positions) I moved to Alabama in 1992 and love it!

    Previous Domestic Violence
    Nodine’s ex-girlfriends accused him of harassment and assault in April 1987 with the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office. Palm Beach County sheriff's deputies responded to a neighbor's complaint of screaming from an apartment in unincorporated West Palm Beach. According to a sheriff's report, an ex-girlfriend complained that Nodine had entered her apartment by cutting a porch screen and was waiting for her when she came home at 1:30 a.m.

    The woman claimed Nodine "struck her several times on the legs." She did not want to press charges, according to the report, "but she stated that she just wanted him out and for him not to return to residence." "The victim and the suspect had broken up approximately four months prior to this incident happening and from that time on, he had been harassing her," Public Information Officer Teri Barbera said.

    Three month after the report was filed, Nodine was honorably discharged from the Florida Army National Guard.

    This would have been around the time he was supposedly working for his mentor Haig. He was also evicted from his apt.

    Below is from the Mobile County Commissioner page:
    Nodine Remembers Friend, Mentor in Haig February 22, 2010
    Mobile County Commissioner Stephen Nodine called former Secretary of State and retired Army Gen. Alexander Haig a dear friend, hero, mentor, and father figure after news broke early Saturday that he had died at the age of 85.

    Nodine served as the advance coordinator for Haig during his 1987-1988 presidential campaign through New Hampshire, Michigan and Florida. He had known Gen. Haig as a family friend and started up a lively correspondence with the general in 1982. At that time, Nodine was an Army private stationed in Germany. Nodine carried on a correspondence with the Haig family ever since. (Haig was out by Feb 1988 before the New Hampshire primary)

    “He was not gruff, but really down to earth, compassionate, very humorous and a he really had a pulse of the common man,” Nodine said. “I learned so much from him, especially on foreign policy.”

    Gen. Haig had a hand in helping Nodine in his political efforts in Mobile. When Nodine found himself in a runoff for a Mobile City Council seat against Charles Waller in 2001, Gen. Haig sent a letter on Nodine’s behalf to all 7th District constituents. Nodine won the race with 2,800 votes to Waller’s 1,900. The victory launched Nodine’s political career.

    I’d very much like to see a copy of this letter and ask if it was verified authentic? This is the same time he got evicted from his apt and domestic violence report came out.

    “I’ve known the Haig family since 1983 and traveled extensively with them through the presidential primary,” said Nodine. “Alexander Haig was a great man who gave his all to a country he loved. We are better off as a nation and a people for the many efforts he made during his years in public service.”

    Mr Nodine has been purposely vague on when, where and what he did before coming to Mobile. No Corporate environment would accept this as remotely resembling a Vita. Why does no one do background checks on politicians.

    Drugs? They're Illegal Right?

    Drugs

    It’s long been said Steven Nodine has had a drug problem, The Grand Jury indicted Steve for much more. What about criminal charges on drugs, misuse of funds, violation of protection orders, etc? He resigned so what happens now?

    1. Stephen Nodine's gun charge linked to alleged drug use by McClendon 5/28/2010

    2. Atty: Took months to build Nodine case, Wanted to do the investigation correctly 5/17/2010

    "Found some marijuana. Found some behind the seat on the passenger side in a pill bottle with his name on it, and found some rolling papers. It was a Lortab, hydrocodone, pill bottle; your basic standard pill bottle. There was also a similar pill bottle that he just had filled the day before that had 100 Lorotabs,"

    "Basically over an 11-month period, he got in excess of 2,400 hydrocodones, that's imported from doctors in nine different pharmacies and several states. To construct a possession, we had to put him in exclusive control of the vehicle, so we had to get gas receipts. It's a brand new vehicle, so we had to get the records on the vehicle," Billy added.

    Billy said the investigation was lengthy because they wanted to be thorough. He said the past months were very beneficial in his investigation and they uncovered even more that will help come trial time.

    Mr. Nodine tested positive for marijuana and opiates in a May 11 drug screening.

    3. Nodine faces impeachment over drugs, affair; Mobile County Commissioner Stephen Nodine arrested, faces impeachment charges 5/14/2010

    Nodine has been accused of:

    • Using his county-issued pickup truck for “personal and recreational pursuits” including using the vehicle to conduct “a long term, open and notorious extramarital affair” with Angel Downs. At one point, in 2008, he lost one county truck during Mardi Gras for six days. More recently, Nodine drove a county truck to Don Carlos restaurant in Daphne after drinking beer on the beach and spending the day with Downs, the bill says.

    • Asking for county reimbursement for alcohol, fuel and food in New Orleans that were not related to his official duties.

    • Committing multiple acts of domestic violence in his extra-marital relationship with Downs, including stalking, harassment, verbal and physical abuse, and threats. During two such incidents, the bill says, Nodine invoked his official position as a commissioner to dissuade Downs from seeking police protection.

    • Using fraudulent prescriptions to obtain more than 2,400 hydrocodone pills from at least nine pharmacies in four states between March 2009 and January 2010.

    4.Steve Nodine and Me by Shane McBryde

    Nodine’s entrée into the radio station came from his befriending one of the stations disc jockey’s at the time named Chris Smith, who also hosted a show on the cable company’s public access channel as a character Smith created called “Uncle Henry.” Smith, Nodine and I were friends, though we didn’t all hang out together at the same time, in part because we all shared an affinity for three things, radio, politics and marijuana. At some point, and for reason I don’t remember, Nodine and Smith had a falling out.

    Nodine had acquired an access key to the radio station and used it one morning to enter the building about five o’clock. He went into the broadcast booth where Smith was hosting the morning show with his partner and proceeded to tell Chris he would, “snap his neck like a twig.”

    The other occasion occurred in much the same way. Steve called me at the radio station, this time a little closer to 5 am, my shift ended at 5:30am, and said he had bought a television for his wife Kimberly, for whatever reason she was upset with him at the time and scolded him about something. Nodine related to me he got so mad he threw the television on the floor in front of her, smashing it into pieces.

    I must say I knew all along that Steve liked to drink, chase women, and smoke dope.

    5. Ethics, drugs and murder charges pile on politico by Kevin Lee 5/16/2010
    Nodine’s behavior was obvious to anyone with open eyes. He cultivated a sizable reputation for crassness, arrogance and licentiousness. The group of party friends he had were known for a fondness of cocaine and anything else they could get their hands on.

    6. Sheriff: Drugs found in Nodine's truck Commissioner says he offered to take blood test , 12/28/2009

    Nodine After Michelangelo's "Last Judgement"


    JD Crowe 5/26/10
    http://blog.al.com/jdcrowe/2010/05/nodine_1.html
    Editorial cartoons and commentary from J.D. Crowe of the Press-Register

    Steve Nodine's life and career are being dragged down by his demons.

    The Mobile County Commissioner, already awaiting an impeachment trial for fraudulent use of a county vehicle, belligerent behavior and prescription drug abuse, has now been charged with murder in the death of his mistress.

    Baldwin County Sheriff Huey "Hoss" Mack says the murder of Angel Downs is the end result of a history of domestic violence.

    Nodine's erratic behavior and personal life have been on extraordinary, and now tragic, public display for several weeks. How long have his actions been covered for by colleagues, officials, friends and lawyers? Had Nodine been held accountable sooner, perhaps a life could have been spared.

    Nodine Cast of Characters - Uncle Henry and Tattoo Lady

    Quote Originally Posted by noZme View Post

    Steve Nodine's not so secret life Watch Video

    "I totally think Steve was a different person out of work," said Chassity Ebbole.

    Ebbole, owner of L.A. Body Art, has known Nodine for years. She remembers one particular night she spent with him.

    "This was back in 2003 for the Snoop Dogg concert. And after I tattooed the promoters and we all made contacts, I was invited to the VIP trip to the concert and I took the invitation. And I stepped into the limousine, and there was Steve. And Steve and I knew each other and it didn't surprise me that he was there," Ebbole said.

    Ebbole said Steve made himself known, and he never gave much thought to how he came across to others.

    "I just remember, Steve had a drink and he was just shucking and jiving and having a good time with everybody," Ebbole explained.

    No one seemed to ever question Nodine on his behavior out of work.

    "We would see him in the bars, and you know, it's not a secret that Steve liked to drink, that's not a secret at all and he was very much a butterfly. You'd see Steve here and there and there and there. Nobody stopped for one minute to say, 'Hey wait a minute, this is a person within authority within our city council.' Steve had the ability to hang out with the common man, have a blast, then go over to Government Plaza and handle business," Ebbole said.

    Nodine also had a love for women, despite the fact that he was married.

    "Steve was a flirt, hands down and across the board. Any female out there is going to tell you Steve's a flirt. That's not a shock either; that's common information," added Ebbole.

    The Sisterhood of Angel Downs

    Angel was one of seven very close friends. At 7:30pm she texted she'd see them at the regular Sun Backyard Barbeque. At 8pm Angel was found murdered. Her friends say she had just told them they were her family on Friday.

    June 1 update, Bond Hearing and new story by McBryde



    Judge Takes Nodine’s Bond “Under Submission”

    WKRG Video and story June 1, 2010

    BALDWIN COUNTY (WALA) - Steve Nodine had a bond reduction hearing this morning, however the judge did not make a ruling.
    The judge wants to wait for the federal indictment on firearms possession charges to be dealt with before addressing the bond reduction on the murder charge.


    Nodine says he wants to spend time with his son. His Pastor and friend spoke on his behalf.


    Angel will never get to visit her father or mother again, there will never be any more joyful moments, nor hope and promise of a future.
    That’s what I think of when I see Nodine smile smugly.

    Steve Nodine, the man, the myth, the murder suspect?

    Interesting story by Shane McBryde about Nodine being in charge of a juvenile offenders program while in Atlanta. Of course there's no actual proof of what he tells the Palm Beach Post. His car is also stolen back in 1993.

    Dearmon put up his own home, land, and cash

    Nodine's bond posted by Mickey Dearmon

    BAY MINETTE, Alabama (WALA) - Steve Nodine's bond has been posted by long-time friend Mickey Dearmon.

    Dearmon said he thought long and hard before putting up the bond.
    "That's what friends do. I have talked to Steve every day since he has been in the Baldwin County Jail. When I told him I put up the bond he started crying," said Dearmon.


    Dearmon put up his Semmes home, a separate piece of land, and some cash.


    Nodine's bond was $500,000.


    "There are two sides to every story, and when Nodine gets out you'll hear his side," added Dearmon.


    Dearmon said Nodine is facing tremendous legal fees, and can't contact people from jail to help.


    "It doesn't work with me calling these people and asking for money," said Dearmon.


    Dearmon said he went to a local bank to see about opening a Nodine defense fund.


    "The bank said it wasn't interested. I've got six accounts with that bank. I will be pulling all of them," said Dearmon.


    Once Nodine is released from the Baldwin County Jail, he is scheduled to appear in federal court.
