A PARISH council chairman has been cautioned by police following an alleged incident, it has emerged.
Albert Tiller, chairman of Rendlesham Parish Council, near Woodbridge, was given bail to appear at Woodbridge police station yesterday.
A spokeswoman for Suffolk police said: "A 59-year-old Rendlesham man has been cautioned by police under section five of the Public Order Act following an incident in Jays Croft Road on May 24."
As reported in later editions of yesterday's Evening Star, Mr Tiller, of Jays Croft Road, Rendlesham, was originally arrested on suspicion of making threats to kill but it is understood that the caution now refers to a less serious offence which happened last month.
Mr Tiller, chairman for four years, was unavailable for comment and George Newson, parish clerk, declined to make a comment.
Suffolk Coastal District Council and the Standards Board for England, which oversees the behaviour of councillors, will wait to see if a complaint is made about Mr Tiller from either the parish council or a member of the public.

A district council spokesman said: "We have not heard officially about this and so it is a bit hard for us to make a considered opinion on this case.
"It may well be that the parish council may think that the council has been brought into disrepute. It could be an issue that the Standards Board may wish to look into."
