CASTLE ROCK, Wash. (AP) — The mayor of Castle Rock is required to take anger management classes for violating the courtesy code at a City Council meeting when he raised his voice against the police chief who asked for more money for ammunition.

The council in the southwest Washington town voted last week to admonish Mayor Paul Helenberg for the tirade against Chief Bob Heuer at a December budget discussion.

The Daily News reports the Association of Washington Cities investigated a complaint and recommended that Helenberg take two two-hour anger management classes.

The mayor says he was caught off-guard by a discrepancy in budget numbers but admitted the way he presented himself was wrong. He apologized to the police chief and council.
