Atlantic City's mayor and a councilman will not be prosecuted after they got in a fight last month with casino employees outside a club at the Golden Nugget.

Mayor Frank Gilliam and Councilman Jeffree Fauntleroy were issued summonses for harassment and simple assault as a result of the Nov. 12 incident.

The case was transferred to Cape May over an undisclosed conflict with the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office.

"Cape May County Prosecutor Jeffrey H. Sutherland announces the Cape May County Prosecutor's office will not be pursuing any criminal charges regarding the altercation that took place outside of the Golden Nugget Casino between Atlantic City Mayor, Frank Gilliam, Atlantic City Councilman, Jeffree Fauntleroy II and certain employees of the Haven Nightclub," the prosecutor said in a short news release.

Late Wednesday, the state Attorney General's Office released security footage from the Golden Nugget that shows the fight erupting in the valet area shortly after the men exited Haven nightclub. The silent video shows the mayor, wearing a cap, first arguing with two men, as a woman attempts to restrain him. Around the 4-minute mark, the mayor can be seen running after the men alongside a row of cars and throwing punches in their direction. Fauntleroy can be seen throwing one man to the ground.
