"Vice President John O'Gurek said David Hiles, who owns Hiles Bros. Car Wash on North Street, illegally parked a storage trailer on borough land neighboring the car wash. Hiles disagreed and accused O'Gurek of violating borough laws that require permits for parking long-term storage trailers. After O'Gurek walked to the back of the room and handed Hiles a sheet of paper that he said proved he was innocent, Hiles quickly crumpled it up with both hands and threw it at O'Gurek. O'Gurek then lunged toward Hiles. Hiles charged back. Several people in the audience restrained both men."
