City council meeting in AR gets heated between mayor and members

Posted: Updated:

GARLAND CITY,  AR (KSLA) - The last time we saw her, the mayor of Garland City was standing in front of a judge, charged with cashing a check of more than $700.

She says that was her payroll check.

Yvonne Dockery made a $50,000 bond over the weekend, and on Monday night she presided over her first council meeting since the arrest.

An attendant of the meeting says in no time, it turned into an attack game between the mayor and council members.

Dockery blames the council, saying they conspired to get her arrested.

But that wasn't the only heated confrontation with the mayor.

After the city attorney failed to agree with her, Dockery verbally attacked her too, calling the city attorney a thief.

As of Monday, Yvonne Dockery remains the mayor of garland.
