BALTIMORE — A man accused of punching Baltimore City Council President Brandon Scott outside of a mayoral forum has filed counter charges.

In a statement, City Council President Spokesperson Stefanie Mavronis said:

“We don’t know why Mr. Moore is filing this false statement, but what he claims is patently false, and is contradicted by people who witnessed his behavior, his own statements on social media before and after the incident, and by his termination by the Dixon campaign. City residents will not be fooled and the Council President will not be distracted from the important work of serving the people of Baltimore.”
