When county commissioners attempted to begin a closed session meeting last week, an irate man caused a scene — resulting in a scuffle with a security guard and gun discharge.

WEWS-TV reported that Mike Skidmore approached a county clerk after the Richland County commissioners called for the closed meeting and grabbed her shoulder so he could take a picture of her nametag. Commissioners then called security, but instead of leaving, Skidmore allegedly began to get violent with the security guard, reportedly biting him in the face.
