HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (AP) - A South Florida man was arrested after he reportedly attacked a speaker with a pen at a Hollywood city meeting.
The person who was attacked suffered a puncture wound but was not taken to a hospital. The South Florida Sun Sentinel and Miami Herald reported Wednesday that 54-year-old Monte Frankel was arrested and charged with aggravated battery.
Police say the victim was speaking to the city's Unsafe Structures Board Tuesday night at Hollywood City Hall about a home that he said should be declared an unsafe structure. The police report says Frankel shouted "Don't talk about my mother" and then punched the back of the victim's head and stabbed a pen at his shoulder.
The police report says officers found Frankel lying on the floor muttering unintelligibly.
