The Rules Committee of the Metro Council voted unanimously to defer the vote on the resolution that calls for Davidson County Clerk John Arriola to resign. A state audit found Arriola collected more than $119,000 by charging a $40 fee to perform weddings. According to state law, the county clerk is only allowed to collect money as a voluntary gratuity.The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has been investigating Arriola since July. Metro Council member Robert Duvall filed a resolution asking the county clerk to step down. The resolution would be non-binding. Arriola's office released a statement saying the finding has no support in fact or law. Officials said the resolution will likely be taken up at the next Metro Council meeting.
