SALISBURY, Md. - A Wicomico County councilman is under investigation by the Maryland State Police after his mother filed a protection against him.

Authorities began looking into Bob Culver after the order was filed Friday in Wicomico County District Court. Elena Russo, a state police spokeswoman, would not comment further because the investigation is ongoing.

Culver tells The Daily Times of Salisbury ( that he has not done anything wrong and is cooperating with authorities. He says the protection order was filed by his mother, Ruth Culver-Freeman. He referred to the situation as "more or less a family matter."

Culver is an at-large member of the council.
