Social Security office security guard's arm broken in scuffle

SILVERDALE, Wash. (AP) - A security guard at a Social Security office in Silverdale suffered a broken arm in a struggle with a man who was kicked out for being disruptive.

The 43-year-old guard told Kitsap County sheriff's deputies the man pushed him to the ground Monday in the parking lot.

Kitsap Sun reports the 26-year-old Hoodsport man was charged Tuesday with felony assault. He denied pushing the guard and said he threw himself on the ground.
