A former Saginaw County Board of Commissioners chairman who wants aseat on the proposed Saginaw City Charter Commission may have to put his bid on hold.

Police arrested Al Holiday, 50, at his home Monday and booked him inthe County Jail on suspicion of assault with intent to commit murder against his 40-year-old wife.

Police said she told them she was sitting in the bedroom of their homeon Carter when Holiday walked in and started arguing about money andthreatened to kill her.

Holiday left the room and returned a short time later and poured onher what she thought was water, she told police.When she realized it was gasoline, she fled the room as Holiday chased her with a lighter in his hand, police reported she said.

The woman ran to a neighbor's home and called police, they said.

Detectives today still were trying to gather additional information to take to the prosecutor's office to possibly bring charges, policesaid. Holiday remained in jail this morning.

Holiday, a former United Auto Workers employee assistance coordinatorat Delphi Saginaw Steering Systems, served on the Board of Commissioners from 1980 to 1994, including a two-year stint aschairman in 1989 and 1990.

Holiday, who is now vice president of the Saginaw Housing Commission, has taken out nominating petitions to appear on the Nov. 2 ballot forthe proposed Saginaw City Charter Commission.

Holiday has had previous brushes with the law. In January 1985, Holiday tangled with police over a confrontation witha 17-year-old man in a pool hall on East Holland. Holiday said he followed the teen there after the youth struck him in the face with asnowball earlier in the evening. Police made no arrests and prosecutors filed no charges.

Police also arrested Holiday on Sept. 1, 1990, after his wife filed a domestic violence complaint, but prosecutors did not charge him.

Dec. 21, 1990, Saginaw police arrested Holiday after receiving reportsof a shooting in the vicinity of his now-former wife's home onSheridan. A District Court jury found Holiday not guilty of maliciousdestruction of property but guilty of leaving the scene of an autocrash in which his 1988 Chevrolet van collided with another car in the driveway of his wife's home.

In 1996, he paid a $300 fine for disturbing the peace at the KFC restaurant at Hess and Dixie in Buena Vista Township. Witnesses said a dispute over parking between Holiday and another man led to the confrontation.

Holiday unsuccessfully challenged then-state Rep. Michael J. Hanleyfor the 95th House District in the 1996 Democratic primary.

In 1998, Holiday suffered a stroke in Washington, D.C., while attending the National Association of Counties' legislativeconference. He was representing the Region VII Area Agency on Aging when he became ill.
