Gilliam and several others were recently involved in an early morning fight outside an Atlantic City casino, but local prosecutors announced last week they wouldn't file criminal charges.

In April, a judge threw out a criminal complaint against Gilliam over the alleged theft of a $10,000 check from the Atlantic City Democratic Committee.

Gilliam took office earlier this year.
