Mayor Kim Loses It In City Hall Confrontation With Public Safety Deputy Jason Tetu
Saratoga Springs Police have released a video of Mayor Ron Kim in an epithet-laced rant at Public Safety Deputy Commissioner Jason Tetu and Public Safety Commissioner James Montagnino that took place in City Hall.
Apparently, Kim had received some emails that he considered threatening. He also claimed that the same person who sent these emails to him sent threatening emails to someone in his family.
Kim was referred to the police sergeant who handles complaints. Apparently, the sergeant, after reviewing the emails, said that they did not rise to the level of serious threat and declined to pursue the matter.
This prompted Kim to take his anger out by going to the Commissioner of Public Safety's office where he confronted Public Safety Deputy Commissioner Jason Tetu with sufficiently abusive language that Tetu threatened to have Kim arrested.
Montagnino came out of his office and received additional abuse from Kim.
Kim told the Times Union he planned to apologize.
