During his tenure, Mays was been known as a highly controversial due to several incidents where he was suspended and escorted out of city council meetings.

He was jailed in January 2016 for 30 days allegedly crashing his car in 2013 before driving it nearly three miles and ending up facing the wrong way on Interstate 475. No witnesses testified to seeing Mays drive the vehicle on the night in question, but several police officers said he confessed to driving drunk the night of his arrest.

He represented himself in the trial, where he asked several jurors about their belief in God and attempted to delay the release of Breathalyzer test results from the night of the incident. He referred to the case as highly politically motivated.

On November 26, 2017, Mays pleaded no contest for allegedly pawning a city-owned laptop 9-times over the course of two years to “Music Man Pawnshop”. When asked about the scandal, Mays claimed, “I don’t’ think it’s criminal, I think it just shows I’m poor.” and that the laptop was safer in the pawn shop due to city hall having had instances of trespassing in the past.

In 2020, Mays likened City Council President Monica Galloway to Adolf Hitler after a verbal altercation and performed a Nazi salute to mock her. Mays was removed from the meeting as a result, where he was observed yelling in protest while being escorted out by a police officer.

Councilman Maurice Davis motioned to have Mays removed from his leadership roles, which was approved. He was suspended from the council for 90 days on December 20th, 2023 for making “constant frivolous motions” and using “racist rhetoric.” Mays proceeded to deny the allegation and plans to file federal legal action against the city council.
