ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -

The Atlantic City Democratic Committee is calling on the city's mayor and a councilman to step down following allegations of their involvement in a physical altercation at an Atlantic City casino.

According to Breaking AC, at an emergency meeting held on the night of Monday, November 26th, the Committee called on Mayor Frank Gilliam and Councilman Jeffree Fauntleroy to step down as a result of their "Outrageous and egregious" behavior that resulted in charges of simple assault and harassment.

The Committee passed a resolution 27-3 stating if the men did not step down they would request that Governor Phil Murphy and Lieutenant Governor Sheila Oliver force them to.

Gilliam and Fauntleroy both face charges in the alleged fight at the Golden Nugget on Sunday, November 11th.
