A Queensbury man is arrested, accused of attacking another man at a polling place on Tuesday.

The Warren County Sheriff's Department says 57-year-old Robert Hogan kneed another man in the face.

NewsChannel 13’s media partners at the Post-Star report it happened around 10 a.m. across from the West Glens Falls Fire Department polling place.

The victim, Dylan Hafner, tells the paper he saw an Elise Stefanik for Congress sign tipped over.

He says he was under the impression it was abandoned property and put the sign in his car.

He says at that point, Hogan drove by, pulled over, swore at him, and yelled.

Hafner asked him if it was his sign and said he would give it to him.

The Post-Star then reports Hogan attacked him.

Hogan was released on an appearance ticket and is due back in court on November 9.
