All hell broke loose last night at a town hall meeting in East Point that was supposed to be a civil discussion about East Point Mayor Earnestine Pittman’s proposed property tax increase to offset a rollback in utility rates.
Apparently both subjects were heated topics for the angry crowd who showed up for the event.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that within two hours, police had ejected four attendees, and an elderly man had challenged a middle-age man to a fist fight. One man angrily charged towards Mayor Pittman and had to be forcefully restrained by East Point police after initially breaking free of their grasp.
Mayor Pittman was forced to end the meeting early. Watch video of the chaotic town hall meeting below.
