Baltimore Mayoral candidate Catherine Pugh.

A spokesman for Catherine Pugh’s Baltimore mayoral campaign says some people who wante d to work for the campaign on Maryland’s primary day became upset and damaged cars outside a campaign office after being told there were no jobs available.

Anthony McCarthy tells The Associated Press that after Pugh was informed of the situation, she decided everyone who showed up to work would be allowed to, and all would be paid.

The campaign had been recruiting people to hand out literature at polling places, promising they would be paid $100. McCarthy says people were supposed to fill out an application and be trained before the primary, but many just showed up Tuesday morning without having done that.

Baltimore police say one 53-year-old man was arrested for destruction of property.
