Former Union Gap Mayor to appear in court

UNION GAP, Wash. -- Former Mayor Jim Lemon will be in court next week on charges related to an argument with a city employee.

Police say Lemon peeled away in his car after the argument and that the force from his tires threw gravel in the worker's face.

He's charged with reckless driving -- which is a criminal offense.

Lemon told KIMA there was a heated conversation, but says he did not hurt the employee.
