GLOVERSVILLE — Mayor Dayton King has been arrested for official misconduct by state police.

King, 39, was charged with the misdemeanor charge today.

Troopers said King is alleged to have used his position as mayor of Gloversville to gain access to and review the personnel jacket of a Gloversville city employee, and his opponent in the race for mayor.

King then released information that he found in the personnel file on the air during a live debate on a local radio station.

King voluntarily appeared at the Mayfield State Police barracks where he was processed and released with an appearance ticket returnable in the Johnstown Court on Dec. 20, at 6 p.m.
