There's a simmering bit of tension between the Mayor Megan Barry's office and the Davidson Co. Sheriff Daron Hall over a new jail and its name.
And with what happened today, the tension only increased.
It sparked a bit of anger when the man who will be running this jail found out there was supposed to be a ceremony today to celebrate a key moment in construction with the mayor speaking -- a ceremony, he says he wasn't invited to attend.
"It's disappointing -- I had my own staff who heard about it say, 'Hey, we're not even invited. What's the problem?'" Sheriff Hall explained. "I get frustrated about how the Mayor's Office has handled us on these types of issues."
It's the latest dispute between the Mayor's Office and the sheriff over this site -- and it only got worse when the invite was sent out.
Sheriff Hall has long argued the new facility should shed its old name, the Criminal Justice Center, after the renovations are complete.
The reason, he says, is that the people who will be held there will only be charged with crimes, not convicted of them.
