American Legion Flap Leads To Punch

Several months of internal struggles at what has been one of the most active American Legion posts in the state may have reached its boiling point on Saturday. After the election of officers at Post 143 in Post Falls, David "Robby" Robinson, who served as the most recent commander before being voted off the board, was cited for misdemeanor battery for allegedly punching fellow member Len Crosby. Per the Legion staff's request, Robinson was also issued a trespass warning. Crosby and Robinson told police different stories of how Crosby ended up with a cut on his upper lip. "(Crosby) stated he was walking down the hall ... when Robby said to Len, 'You're going down,' and then punched him in the face with a closed fist," the police report states/Brian Walker, Coeur d'Alene Press.

Question: Is this the way for adults to act?
