A sworn complaint for misdemeanor battery has been made against Cedar Key City Commissioner C. Dale Register after an altercation with another man on Thursday, Dec. 13, at about 9 p.m. by the Fraternal Order of Eagles lodge.

Cedar Key Police Chief Virgil Sandlin, responding to a public records request by the Cedar Key Beacon, said, “He was charged with battery; papers were filed with the state attorney's office. We'll see where it goes.”

At Tuesday's City Commission meeting, Register read a statement: “As many have heard I was involved in an altercation last Thursday night. There are legal proceedings under way and I am not at liberty to discuss any details of the unfortunate event or the proceedings. I just want you to know that I am as commited as ever to doing the best job I can to serve the citizens of Cedar Key as one of your Commissioners. Thank you for understanding.”

Register's face was visibly bruised and he had a bandage over his left forehead. The injuries were the result of the fight in front of the Fraternal Order of Eagles Club on B Street.
