Navajo Nation council speaker charged with battery

Lawrence Morgan, the speaker of the Navajo Nation Council, has been charged with battery for allegedly assaulting another council delegate.

The incident allegedly took place last Thursday in a bathroom at the council headquarters in Window Rock, Arizona. Delegate Mark Maryboy says he got into a shoving match with Morgan over a legislative dispute earlier in the day.

Maryboy is a delegate from Aneth, Utah. The Aneth community released a letter calling on Morgan to apologize. If Morgan apologizes, they want Maryboy to drop his complaint.
