According to a facebook posting on the Box Elder County Journals page, Brigham city released a statement saying "At the conclusion of a heated discussion in a Box Elder County Commission meeting, Brigham City Council member Ruth Jensen reports that she was assaulted by Brigham City Mayor Dennis Fife. Council member Jensen reported to police that Mayor Fife grabbed her by the arm holding her in place while yelling at her. The investigation will be conducted by an outside police agency with legal review by an independent law firm."
Calls and emails to the Mayor and his office from ABC 4 have gone unanswered. Ruth Jenson did respond telling ABC 4 that the investigation is ongoing and she has been advised not to speak on the matter.
