LEITH, N.D. (AP) — Authorities say a white supremacist who moved to the small southwestern North Dakota town of Leith two weeks ago was forcibly removed from a city council meeting by law enforcement officers.

City councilman Lee Cook tells the Bismarck Tribune that 29-year-old Kynan Dutton was confrontational, profane and was making racist comments to people at the Friday night meeting.

Grant County Sheriff Steve Bay says Dutton was taken to his residence.

Dutton and his wife, Deborah Dutton, and their five children moved from Oregon to Leith in early October, saying they were the first white supremacist settlers in a plan to take over the community and the town's government.
