City Councilman Charged With Assault

A Rocky Mount city councilman has been charged with assault stemming from a scuffle after a city council meeting Monday night.

Andre Knight was served with a criminal summons Tuesday and has a January 14th court date.

Police chief John Manley says he had to step in between Knight and Herbert Moore after the meeting.

Manley says he did not arrest the councilman at the time because he felt it was more appropriate to simply mitigate the situation. Moore later pressed charges at the magistrate's office.
