WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Police officers in Waterloo investigated a disturbance call at a city council member's home on Sunday.

Officers say the case is now inactive and did not result in any arrests, but involved Waterloo City Council member Chris Shimp. A neighbor called police on Sunday afternoon around 3:14 p.m. saying a verbal argument between a man and a woman was happening outside of a nearby home, according to officers. Officers spoke with Shimp after arriving, while the woman had left the scene. Police also eventually spoke with her about the situation, and say both people were cooperative and did not wish to pursue any charges.

Shimp joined the Waterloo City Council last month after winning the Ward 5 election last November.

In October 2017, Shimp was arrested for public intoxication by University of Northern Iowa Police. He pleaded guilty to the charge and paid a fine.
