ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Albany's city attorney has been suspended for bringing a gun and knife to work. Several times in the past few weeks, the city commission met behind closed doors to discuss whether to punish Nathan Davis.

A co-worker found the weapons in his desk at the law enforcement building. Mayor Willie Adams says Davis violated the law by having a gun in a public building. Tuesday morning, City commissioner Tommie Postell offered a motion to suspend Davis three days without pay beginning tomorrow.

Mayor Willie Adams said, "This council decided that certainly we could not let him have a slap on the wrist and we decided that we would give him three days suspension without pay that would run consecutively beginning immediately this Wednesday."

Davis does not have a permit to carry a gun. Georgia law allows for people even without a toter's permit to carry a weapon in their cars, home, or place of business. Davis has been the city attorney since 2003.
