Police officials said Dudley approached them about 30 minutes into the demonstration. The man reported Dudley began to berate them with insults and demanded that they leave the public space. The veteran and his wife tried to leave but then Dudley allegedly bumped him with her body.

At some point, the veteran reportedly dropped a Veterans for Trump sign and Dudley stepped on it. As he bent over to pick up the sign, Dudley allegedly knocked him to the ground causing injury to one of his fingers.

Police arrested Dudley and charged her with Assault and Battery on an Elderly Person Causing Injury. Officials later released her on a $250 cash bond.

Following a court appearance on Monday, Dudley told Worchester Telegram & Gazette journalist Christine Peterson that it was the veteran who assaulted her. She said the veteran is being charged as well.

A small group of supporters of the veteran and President Trump gathered outside the courthouse.
