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.
According to the Richland County Sheriff's Office, the security guard's gun was purposefully discharged.
Watch it unfold below:
Skidmore was arrested and faces felonious assault charges. The two security guards were taken to the hospital with injuries.
Richland County Sheriff Steve Sheldon said during a press conference that the building had only gotten security a year and a half ago.
