FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) – An online petition calling for the resignation of Fayetteville City Councilman John La Tour was started after an alleged incident at a Dickson Street restaurant Friday (March 18).
A post on Facebook claims La Tour singled out a woman at Arsaga’s at the Depot restaurant claiming he didn’t know if she was a man or woman.
The Change.org petition has garnered more than 2,100 signatures with a goal of 1,500.
5NEWS reached out to Cary Arsaga, owner of Arsaga’s at the Depot, who declined to comment until he spoke with La Tour privately about the incident.
Calls and messages made to La Tour have not yet been returned.
