GADSDEN, AL (WBRC) - A retired Gadsden Police officer recalls her division chief telling her and other officers to watch Roy Moore at high school football games in the late 1970s.

"There had been a complaint about Roy Moore for hanging around the cheerleaders," Faye Gary said. "They were uneasy about this older man standing and watching."

Gary says she never had to tell Moore to "move on" and never saw a formal complaint filed against him. She says as a juvenile officer, she would have seen such a complaint.

Gadsden had three high schools at the time: Gadsden High, Litchfield High and Emma Sansom High. All three held their games at Murphree Stadium.  Gary says Moore was seen at games for all three schools.

"It's not about politics. It's about morals," Gary says. "It's time to stop putting politics before everything."

The Moore campaign did not immediately offer a response to her comments.
