Adel - An Adel City Councilman is banned from the Cook County Board of Education for his involvement in a fist fight with a board member. He now plans to take civil action against the school board.
Police were called out to the board of education building Wednesday afternoon where reports say Assistant Superintendent Lance Heard and Mayor Pro Tem Gregory Paige got into a fist fight.
