BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - There is a health scare on the Biloxi City Council.  George Lawrence is in Ocean Springs Hospital and will have a pacemaker procedure Monday morning.

We called the Ward 1 councilman on his cell phone this afternoon.  He told us he felt faint on Saturday night while dancing at a Seafood Industry Museum party.

When asked how he was feeling today, Lawrence laughed and said not well. He should be in the hospital for a couple of days.
