Latest indictment adds to Sen. Ford's checkered public record - Friday, 05/27/05: "Since state Sen. John Ford was first elected 31 years ago, the Memphis Democrat's name has been at the center of numerous controversies. Below is a recap of some of the most notorious episodes in his legislative career.

Controversy: In October 1990, Ford was charged with shooting at a trucker on Interstate 40 near Lexington. He was indicted and pleaded not guilty.

Outcome: In a jury trial the next year, he was acquitted.

Controversy: Memphis utility workers in 1997 accused the senator of threatening them with a loaded shotgun. Apparently, Ford became angry when the crew from Memphis Light, Gas and Water parked their vehicles in his driveway, making it difficult for his wife to exit in her car.

Outcome: The senator was placed on pretrial diversion and completed 250 hours of community service."
