The attorney for Ashland Police Chief Lyn Woolford is tight-lipped about what led to the police chief's placement on administrative leave. However, he said they plan to challenge the decision.
According to a Tuesday news release, Woolford was placed on paid administrative leave effective immediately at the direction of the mayor.
