A Westport man was arrested after Fairfield police said he showed up at the front door of the Democratic Town Committee office yelling profanities and insults at volunteers inside.
Michael Silverstein, 61, of Bayberry Lane, a Trump supporter, was issued a summons for breach of peace after the incident that happened around 4 p.m. at the DTC office at 1 Sasco Hill Road, the Connecticut Post reported.
Reached Saturday, he, said, “I let my emotions get the best of me. I wish I didn’t do it. I’m better than that,” the newspaper reported
While he did say that he did “terrorize and curse them out,” he never made any threat
“The situation escalated quickly. I screamed and yelled, but I never touched (the volunteer worker),” he said.
Silverstein alleged over the past four years, Trump supporters “on a daily basis have been attacked, harassed and threatened. I’m fed up.”
He criticized the mainstream media, liberals, the “radical left and Marxists” for criticizing Trump and his supporters.
Silverstein, a chiropractor, said when he saw all the Biden/Harris signs outside the DTC headquarters, he felt compelled to speak his mind.
