Amy Davis has on-camera confrontation with Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner

KPRC 2 investigative reporter Amy Davis has been working a long time on a series about high Houston water bills and is still looking for answers.

So Davis went to a public event at the city and asked Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner questions about the water bills. 

As you can see in the above KPRC 2 raw video, the mayor did not appreciate Davis confronting him at this event and had some words for her on camera calling the reporter "very rude" and not professional. Turner said he will call KPRC 2 General Manager Phil Lane about the incident.

Turner asked his Director of Communications, Mary Benton, to escort Davis away. 

In the video, you can hear Davis saying she sent an email with questions, and then you hear Benton saying she did not receive those questions.

Fellow journalists came out in support of Davis on Twitter.
