The attacker alleges that his neighbor was covering his Trump poster with one of the Democratic candidate
The tension between the residents of a Florida community was growing as the date of the presidential elections approached. Many of them put up posters in support of Joe Biden and Donald Trump until a dispute grew heated and a man ended up punching a neighbor in the face.. The attacker was arrested for assault, according to the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office.
Anthony “Tony” Vullo, 55, was charged with a misdemeanor assault charge after officers pointed him out like the perpetrator of the blow to his 48-year-old neighbor, Joseph Lebert, in Debray, about 30 minutes from Orlando, on Aug. 17.

Although a witness supported the victim’s account that Vullo had first pushed the victim and then struck him, Vullo said that he hit the man because Lebert tried to hit him first but failed.
Agents said the victim had obvious signs of injury near your left eye, but he declined medical attention.
