An Atlanta City Council forum Thursday night became heated when City Councilman Michael Julian Bond and Atlanta Public Schools board member Courtney English were separated by the moderator when things appeared to become confrontational.

The two had been sparring about a variety of issues, including accusations of a poorly run school system and irresponsible city government, when Bond appeared to lean in to English and continue to debate his points after his time to speak was up.

Bond and English were taking part in a candidate forum put on by activist group Georgia STAND UP. The two are competing for the Post 1 At Large seat Bond currently holds.

At least they weren't getting into a fight at a political debate!

Didn't seem to be that big of a deal to me.

@ronricks I'm not quoting your post because it was rude, but I think there are plenty of things you can say about this that don't involve making plenty of people who will read your post feel bad about themselves. I don't think Bond's weight had anything to do with this alarming, kind of hilarious story.

Looks like a tempest in a teapot.

I remember when our vice president told a senator to FO, and somehow we managed to survive.
