GARY, Ind. — Being bugged by local politicians is one thing, but bringing actual bugs to city hall may be going a little too far.
Things were running smoothly at Tuesday’s Gary Common Council meeting until someone noticed that a man in the audience had bedbugs on him.
“He was all covered with them,” Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson told The Post-Tribune.
The man was removed from the council chambers and people who’d been sitting next to him were ordered to move.
Gary firefighters, led by Fire Chief Paul Bradley, came in and removed two rows of seats. The seats were wrapped in sheets of red plastic and hauled away.
The Post-Tribune said about 20 people watched the man and the seats being removed.
Police have not said who the man was or if he will be allowed to attend future meetings at City Hall.
