Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. A cold start for this morning. But sunny skies lead to lower 60's this afternoon. Warmer over the weekend, and a slight chance of showers will move back in on Sunday.
2 League City council members cited for fighting
LEAGUE CITY, Texas (AP) -- Two city council members in Southeast Texas have been cited for disorderly conducted after they allegedly got into a fistfight during budget talks.
Misdemeanor citations were issued to Dan Becker and Dennis OKeeffe following Wednesday night's incident at League City City Hall. Becker and OKeeffe on Friday didn't immediately comment.
League City Mayor Tim Paulissen says a budget meeting was set up with Becker, Councilwoman Heidi Thiess, the city manager and the city financial officer.
OKeeffe and Councilwoman Joanna Sharp Dawson unexpectedly showed up at the city manager's office -- making a quorum. The Texas Open Meetings Act prohibits a quorum of council members gathering to discuss city business outside a properly posted public meeting.
The mayor says an altercation happened between Becker and OKeeffe and police were called.
