SACRAMENTO (CBS) — Kevin Johnson no doubt experienced heckling during his NBA playing days  and he’s heard from critics during his three years as Sacramento’s mayor, but Tuesday may have been a first for him.

A man named Leo, a regular attendee at Sacramento City Council meetings, threw his wallet at the mayor. Leo was complaining about having his identification stolen and apparently was upset that Johnson did not help him resolve the situation.

Johnson asked him to wrap it up several times before Leo used an expletive and chucked his wallet at him.

The wallet reportedly hit the dais in front of the mayor and Leo was escorted out of the meeting by police officers.
