BESSEMER, AL (WBRC) - A Bessemer town hall meeting almost resulted in a fight Tuesday night.
The forum called "Let's Talk True Facts" was supposed to be an opportunity for residents to have their concerns addressed. But the meeting quickly turned to the hot-button topic of electronic bingo.
In front of nearly 100 residents, council president Earl Cochran and councilor Louise Alexander both voiced concern for the issue. But when Bessemer Mayor Ed May rose and began to speak against the issue, Cochran grabbed the microphone, telling the audience that May was not going to control the meeting.
