Slight leads to fight, flight

1/17 at 12:40 p.m. Officers responded to a call from Hannaford Supermarket where two men were reportedly fighting in the parking lot. One of the men, who was reportedly a Vietnam War veteran, had confronted the other man when he pulled his pickup truck up into the fire lane and blocked the entrance to the store. The driver and veteran allegedly exchanged heated words, after which, the driver reportedly punched the veteran in the face and took off. The veteran did not want to press charges and police did not know the identity of the other man.

Fight for your right to enlighten
