CALABASH, NC (WECT) - Calabash Town commissioners voted unanimously Tuesday to remove ABC board member Jack Bowes, after complaints from others on the board.

Bowes served on the ABC board for the past six years, but commissioners decided to remove him for what they call "disruptive behavior."

Mayor Anthony Clemmons was first informed about the problems with Bowes in September 2009. The town has been talking to each board member over the past few months to investigate the issues.

Calabash town leaders are working to find Bowes' replacement soon.
