A video posted on YouTube shows council members interrupting her and asking her to leave or be escorted out.

The mayor of Quartzsite, Ed Foster, is heard telling officers to leave Jones alone. "Officer, that woman has the floor you are violating my rules of order," says Foster.

In the end Jones is restrained and escorted out of the council chambers. On her blog she says her arm was injured in the fracas.

The video has sparked public outrage from some who call it a violation of Jones' first amendment rights.

Since it went public, Mayor Foster has been ousted and Quartzsite Police Chief Jeff Gilbert has taken control of the town.

Mayor Ed Foster told The Associated Press on Monday that the town council held a last-minute meeting that was closed to the public Sunday night, declaring a state of emergency in the 3,600-person town just east of the California city of Blythe.

THE POLICE CHIEF MUST BE REMOVE AND CITY COUNCIL MEMBERS, THAT HELD A SECERT MEETING TO REMOVE THE MAYOR. THE STATE AND FEDERAL GOVERNMENT MUST OVERHAUL QUARZSITE CITY GOVERNMENT. POLICE STATE IS STARING IN THE FACE OF EVERY QUARTZSITE CITIZEN.
