Thomas Bryant, an Alabama city councilman accused of using racial slurs has been arrested after punching the town’s Black mayor, Wayman Newton in the face.

Shortly after releasing a footage of the incident, the Police in Tarrant, said there were many people who witnessed the incident which went down Monday, November 7, in the City Hall parking lot. The witnesses include Tarrant Police Department’s police chief.

Officers arrested Bryant at the scene and took him to jail. Police said Bryant was initially charged with harassment, but the charge was since upgraded to third-degree assault.

The dispute reportedly arose from a heated meeting inside City Hall, where Bryant challenged the mayor to step down.

Video shows the guy who took the punch run away before falling to his knees and then getting back up and jumping around.

Bryant has been accused of racism in the past; just last year he allegedly referred to another council member as a “house n*****” during a public meeting.
