Just heard that Ken Lucas,Huntersville Commissioner, was arrested for assault against his wife. I believe he also works for a large bank in security. That is scary! What is Huntersville doing? Elected Officials are charged to lead by example. Time for Ken to finally seek treatment for his anger issues and leave the political office.

Ken is a good person. I hope this is not true. If it is, I hope he will get a chance to address whatever issues led to the incident. But He should be given a chance to tell his side of the story. I'm praying for our local leaders.

I'm appauled at Commissioner Lucas's attorney saying “Ken has tried to save his marriage, especially for sake of the children, but obviously Mrs. Lucas has instead decided to divorce. A cynical man would see this as simply another misuse of the domestic violence system as a strategy to gain an unfair advantage in a divorce case". This is classic abuse against a victim. Hoping all friends and family rally behind his wife in support. Commissioner Lucas, you can't intimidate your wife any more. Time to resign from public office and seek treatment for your anger issues.

The Huntersville Town Board must demand the resignation of Ken Lucas. You cannot be a leader in Huntersville and live this type of personal life assaulting your wife.

I AGREE! This should be an automatic! Commissioner Lucas should resign! Commissioner Lucas is bringing negative attention to Huntersville. Not the publicity Huntersville Needs.

"Innocent until proven guilty" is still the standard in the rest of America, and hopefully in HV as well. But the
whole HV town board is generally a rather contentious and dysfunctional bunch compared to other local town's boards with lots of "verbal violence and abuse" at several meetings. "Mommy" Mayor has trouble keeping the "kids" in line.

Where is the support for Angela? An Ex-Marine and FBI Agent vs a frail wife. How many times do we hear that a woman just fell and hurt herself. REALLY? GET A LIFE! We're lucky that she wasn't injured more. He's moved from mental abuse to physical. If you know Angela, please support her. If you don't, please pray for her.

Time out people!!! Before you speak, know the truth. Ken is a stand up person. I know him very well. Once the truth and the court decision is made public, you will realize he did not do this. How many times do you have to make a decision without knowing the facts!!! Ken Lucas is not at fault...I can asure you that.

Thanks Ken. I like your new name "Jerry", but I believe you are controlling and abusive. I've heard Angela's side and regardless the outcome and the lies you tell, we still know the truth. I am there to support Angela and pray that you get the help you need.

Umm...if you understand how this works, you would realize that the location of where you are at is automatically inserted for you. I'm in Williston, ND so how could this be Ken? Again, you must be another person that bases your decision from speculation and lies. I pray for you because you are mislead.

Let this play out in court first and see who is standing behind Commissioner Lucas (to include Angela's own son from a previous marriage and her own parents.) Mental illness is a very serious issue and everyone prays Angela gets the help she do despertely needs. This is such a private issue and it is very sad to see this in public, especially since Ken and Angela also have a son together. Please think about the kids.
Great

Not sure how you know what's going on from ND then..I've seen the result of the assault in person. I saw the blood in person. Find it hard to believe you can even comment. I'd say you're the mislead.

It is a shame all of you who "support" Angela were not in the courtroom yesterday, to see the academy award winning performance, by Angela. Angela is mentally imbalanced, and needs serious professional help, she admitted to suicide attempts, she is on medication, and she put together a "Plan" for how to get a divorce, after Ken had repeatedly told her he would not divorce her and wanted to go to marriage counceling to work out the marital issues.

Let the courts decide, the justice system in cases like this is slanted towards the plaintiff and the accused is guilty until prove innocent. Great claims to know Angela and be an advocate for Angela, were you the ONE person who was there for her yesterday and advocating for her?

I have known ken for 4 years as well as Angela, and can honestly tell people who have not see her in action, she needs serious help for her mental imbalances. the wrong person is going through hell here

I echo former commissioner's comments. If you know Angela, she is anything but "frail". She doesn't back down from confrontation, I've seen her initiate it! She does need help for her mental illness, very unfortuntate. Kudos to Ken for standing by her for so long. I have never been an advocate for divorce, but unless she is committed to an institution who can medically evaluate her and put her on the proper medication, I can't see how anyone could live with her.
As far as the town board demanding his resignation, those on the town board who know Ken are backing Ken, as they know first hand his integrity and values.
One more thing, there needs to be proof of violence in a domestic violence case, to date no proof has been provided. If this plays out in court like former commissioner has written, then I guess we will all know the truth.
All of you who have written as judge and jury and convicted Ken without hearing his side of the story should be ashamed!

Former Commisioner, Political Follower:

Thank you for your support for Ken. I have known Ken for a little over 30 years. He holds the upmost integrity and wouldn't hurt a sole. I cannot and will not comment on details but, as you and I have said, the truth will come out in court. In times like this, the male figure is most always looked at as the violent one. However, this is not the case here. I truly look forward to the final decision in court.

It became public when Ken decided to be in the public life as a Huntersville Elected Official. As a former commissioner/political follower, I’m guessing you knew that already. I know Ken and Angela from Church, Angela displays the characteristics of an abused spouse. Why did it have to end this way? Marriage is a two way street. Ken doesn’t get to decide when a marriage is over. By your own admission, Ken wouldn’t allow it so it didn’t happen. I’ve lived in an abusive relationship and went through a horrible divorce. I know the signs and should have stepped in. I’m just glad this inicident was survivable. She's lived with a domineering, militaristic husband. You say that she has “emotional issues”; I say this is a result of the years of abuse. She’s lived in Hell for years, not sorry that he has a few days or weeks of it.

One more thing, if Angela is such an emotional disaster, why would Ken leave his small child with her while he travels all over the country? I am guessing this is something that Ken is throwing out as a ploy to discredit Angela. Shame on Him!

I ask that you please re-read my posts. I have not said anything about Angela and "emosional issues." I simply say that the truth will be told in court. I do not discuss details in this forum. There are details that most people are not privy to at this point. Please understand this. There are always two sides to every story. Lastly, you say Angela shows characteristics of an abused spouse...do you have the professional background to make that determination? Just something to think about.
