LINDA WERTHEIMER, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Linda Wertheimer. Things got ugly at a city council meeting in Gardner, Kansas. Councilman Dennis Pugh told a fellow council member to shut up, then stormed out.
Pugh later drove to the councilman's house, where he tackled him and took his video camera. Now charged with battery, Pugh has resigned. The dispute began at a meeting to discuss whether videotaping council meetings would add civility.
