Scuffle Between Councilman, Deputy To Be Probed

Investigators are taking a closer look at last month's scuffle between a city-county councilman and a Marion County sheriff's deputy.

Prosecutor Carl Brizzi has appointed a special prosecutor from Monroe County to look into allegations that City-County Councilman Ron Gibson shoved Deputy Jean Burkert, who was working security during Indiana Black Expo's Summer Celebration.

Gibson denies that he did anything wrong. He said Burkert was abusive. Both have filed complaints against one another.
