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.

No no no thwy don't need no bar if they had a bar and Pam had went there before the meeting she may have pulled a gun and started shooting?
All I can say is Pam had some balls but no need to worry about a building permit she going to have legal fees to pay for this little out burst. I also bet she don't get NO building permit after this?
There is never a good reason to become viloent with anyone, and it isn't "balls", that's for sure, turning the other cheek is much harder than hitting someone. This little tantrum Ms. Presely threw just shows how trashy and ignorant she truely is. Gail is an honest woman and if she called Ms. Presley out for lying, then I believe it to be true. SHAME ON YOU, Ms. Presely, I hope you NEVER get that building permit!
I wasn't at the meeting to know for sure what happened, but I do know Gail Maxwell. I've always known her to be an honest and good woman. For someone to actually slap her is ridiculous. And anyone who would slap the wife of the mayor over a building permit must truly be troubled! It's a building permit for goodness sake! Wait just like everyone else!
