The longtime girlfriend of Lawrence Bell III, former Baltimore City Council president, has charged him with harassment and burglary, according to reports.

Shan Mabry, who claims she dated the former politician for 20 years, brought third-degree burglary, theft of less than $1,000 and telephone harassment and stalking charges against him late last month, The Baltimore Sun reported. She also requested—and was granted–a peace order against Bell, the paper said.

According to the District Court of Maryland Web site, a final hearing in the case is scheduled for March 8.

Bell served 12 years on the city council before launching an unsuccessful mayoral bid against Martin O’Malley in 1999, a campaign which brought to light Bell’s unflattering personal and financial woes. According to the Sun, he dropped out of public view before resurfacing in 2006 in a state senate race which he lost to Catherine Pugh.
