Monroe Police called about incident between City Manager and Vice Mayor | Crime
MONROE, OH (FOX19) – A Monroe Police Officer was called to City Hall Wednesday to document an incident reportedly involving raised voices and chest-poking.
Just before noon Wednesday, Police Officer Brian Curlis was dispatched to see City Manager William Brock, who wanted to report an incident around 9:30 a.m.
Brock reported that he was speaking to Vice Mayor Robert Kelley near the James Monroe Community Room before things got out of hand. He said they were talking about city business when the conversation turned heated. Brock said Kelley moved into his personal space and poked him in the chest with his index finger. He said he felt physically threatened by Kelley’s actions, and told Kelley “Don’t ever touch me again.” Brock said that Kelley then threatened his job, and the heated conversation ended soon after that.
The incident is being classified as disorderly conduct, but when the officer asked Brock if he wished to press criminal charges, he said he just wanted to document the incident at that time.
FOX19 News left voice messages at two numbers for the Vice Mayor early Thursday evening, but didn’t immediately hear back from him.
