On Saturday, June 13, at approximately 6:50 p.m., Hull Police responded to the Hull High School football field, where Town Meeting was held, for a report of a physical altercation shortly after the meeting came to an end around 6:30 p.m.
Through an on-scene investigation, it was determined that the 70-YEAR-OLD MAN shoved Hull Town Manager Philip Lemnios in the chest and pulled his mask off. The 70-YEAR-OLD MAN was apparently upset over several issues discussed during Town Meeting.
Lemnios declined medical attention.
