FOX 17/AP — A woman who was reportedly threatened by an armed commissioner during a live streamed event is now suing the Board of Commissioners in Traverse City.
The incident happened back in January. Images show commissioner Ron Clous displaying a gun during a meeting being held over zoom.
According to the AP, Clous and other county board members were meeting remotely because of the pandemic Jan. 20. During a telephone public comment period, local resident Keli MacIntosh criticized the chairman for allowing members of the far-right Proud Boys group to speak last year in favor of declaring the county a “Second Amendment Sanctuary.”
The lawsuit is expected to be filed April 12 is the US District Court.
