The wife of Nicholson Mayor Ronnie Maxwell was slapped by another woman during last Thursday’s city council meeting.
Pam Presley slapped Gail Maxwell at the meeting while the council was in a closed session in another room. Presley had earlier appeared before the council to complain about a building permit issue.
While waiting for the council to reopen the meeting, Presley was reportedly talking to other attendees about her complaint. Mrs. Maxwell apparently told her to stop stating untrue comments about the issue. Presley then told Maxwell not to call her a liar, then slapped her.
