LEAGUE CITY, Texas -- League City council members came out swinging late Wednesday during a meeting on budget issues. Police had to break up the fight at City Hall.

Dan Becker, 59, and Dennis Okeeffe, 58, were both issued citations, Class C misdemeanors for disorderly conduct -- fighting.

Ruby Wiggins has lived in League City for about four years.

“We need to have some people in office who can control themselves,” Wiggins said. “I’m really surprised.”

Both men were elected in May of 2011. They are reportedly often at odds with each other during council meetings. No word on how or if the mayor and City Hall will deal with the incident.
