Richmond County Sheriff William A. Anderson accused a civil court judge Friday of breaking state law, and said a lot of activities in that court need to be explained.
Sheriff Anderson's fiery outburst came late Friday afternoon after Judge L.W. Cooper postponed a preliminary hearing on six people picked up in a county drug raid. The six were charged with both felony and misdemeanor charges.
The sheriff said he was told that Judge Cooper demanded investigators turn over all paperwork by 5 p.m. Thursday.
This was "highly irregular," the sheriff said. "There are a lot of activities (in civil court) that deserve some answering."

Police offer these tips to protect yourself from financial fraud:
Elderly patients diagnosed with midstage colon cancer benefit as much from chemotherapy after surgery as young patients with the disease, according to a review of more than 3,000 patient records in the New England Journal of Medicine.
Patients 70 and older who were judged fit enough to undergo chemotherapy had the resiliency to withstand the side effects.
The study showed that chemotherapy reduced the risk of death after surgery for colon cancer by 24 percent.
Colon cancer ranks second to lung cancer in the number of deaths it causes each year. Most colon cancer patients are older than 70.
