DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Dallas Mayor Pro Tem Tennell Atkins was found guilty of misdemeanor assault in a municipal court Thursday.

He was accused of assault after trying to enter City Hall last December. Atkins allegedly banged on the door, but when a female city employee refused to let him in since he didn’t have any identification, he became aggressive.

She said he started shouting and grabbed her.

No word on what — if any — impact the conviction will have on Atkins’ position.

He was fined $166.
