Johnson walked up to Cannone in the bar of the Ritz-Carlton, according to the report, and stated, "I just wanted you to know I deleted you off my Facebook Account," and then called Cannone a "fat" expletive.

According to police, Johnson then walked away, but Cannone grabbed her by the arm and then punched her in the face.

The altercation continued once the two were outside.  Cannone was attempting to leave in a van.  Johnson stood in the way of van to prevent it from leaving.

Johnson said she was waiting for authorities to arrive.  Cannone said Johnson stood in the way and was yelling "police".

Officers noted that both Johnson and Cannone "appeared to be intoxicated at the time of the incident."

Cannone was not arrested for hitting the County Commissioner because Johnson said she did not wish to press charges.

Both Johnson and Cannone were escorted off the hotel property by police after being warned about their disorderly conduct.
