The mayor of Wood River has apologized for an incident late last week involving her husband. Bob Maguire was accused of confronting a business owner over a political sign supporting his wife Cheryl's opponent in next month's election. Word of the confrontation quickly spread over social media with video from the business.

Mayor Maguire addressed the situation at last (Monday) night's city council meeting.

The business owner contacted Wood River Police to make a report and turn over a copy of the video but has so far refused to press charges in the case.  Mayor Cheryl Maguire is being challenged by Councilman Tom Stalcup in the upcoming election on April 6.
