Sausalito's vice mayor will not face criminal charges for slapping a fellow council member's hand at a city council meeting.

On September 13, Vice Mayor Mike Kelly slapped Councilwoman Carolyn Ford's hand after Ford lifted her hand towards Kelly and shushed him.

Kelly said the slap came after a contentious five hour council meeting. The vice mayor has apologized. Today the Marin County district attorney said it will conduct a citation hearing in lieu of filing criminal charges against the vice mayor.
