BRIDGEWATER — Chief Christopher D. Delmonte reports that the Bridgewater Police Department arrested an East Bridgewater man after he allegedly pulled a gun on another man during an argument over the victim not wearing a face mask inside a store.
TODD GOULSTON, AGE 59, OF EAST BRIDGEWATER was charged with:
- Assault with a Dangerous Weapon

At approximately 5:20 p.m. on Friday, July 3, Bridgewater Police responded to a call from the manager at Walgreen’s Pharmacy, 4 Central Square, for a report of two men arguing inside the store about one of the men not wearing a face mask.
The argument continued into the parking lot where one of the men, later identified as GOULSTON, allegedly pulled out a gun from his vehicle and pointed it at the other man, who had not been wearing a face mask in the store. GOULSTON then got in his vehicle and left the scene.
The victim, a 30-year-old Abington man, was not injured in the incident.
Through the subsequent investigation, police identified GOULSTON and arrested him a short time later at his home with the assistance of the East Bridgewater Police Department.
After being placed into custody, GOULSTON complained of a medical issue and was transported to a local hospital. His license to carry a firearm and firearms from his home were seized by police.
These are allegations. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty.
