SAUGUS, Mass. (AP) — A member of a Massachusetts town’s school committee charged with assaulting a man with frozen fish patties has been ordered to attend anger management classes.

The Daily Item of Lynn reports (http://bit.ly/2gLoWLL ) that 67-year-old Arthur Grabowski was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. He was accused of hitting 73-year-old Martin Graney with a bag of frozen fish patties during an argument at a veterans’ food drive at the Saugus Senior Center in May.

Both men said the other man was the aggressor.

Grabowski, a member of the Saugus School Committee, was scheduled to go on trial this month, but he agreed to take anger management classes. The case was continued without a finding for six months and the charge will be dismissed if he complies with court orders.
