Chicago Civil Rights Activist Dorothy Tillman Arrested in Alabama
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - Former Chicago alderman and civil rights activist Dorothy Tillman was arrested and charged with criminal trespassing in an incident at a hospital in her native Montgomery.

The arrest Sunday morning came after a confrontation with officials at Jackson Hospital over access to medical records for Tillman's 86-year-old ailing aunt.

Police Lt. Ron Cook said Tillman, 60, was arrested at 6:32 a.m. and released at 8:14 a.m. A pastor posted Tillman's $300 bond and a March 31 court date was set, the Chicago Tribune reported.

Tillman had attended a funeral Saturday for civil rights icon Johnnie Carr.
