KING, N.C. -- We have new details in the case of Vivian Fulk, chair of the Stokes County Democratic Party, who was arrested at the American Legion in King on Election Day.

King Police Department Chief Paula May told FOX8 that Fulk "dumped tea on a man and kicked him in the groin."

The American Legion, located at 446 S. Main St., was being used as a polling place at the time.

A 911 call obtained by FOX8 documents the events through the words of an eyewitness.

"This lady's gone berserk out here," said the caller. "She's knocked a man down and she's still trying to fight. Need, need some help down here."

Witnesses say the altercation started with a conversation.

"They was talking back and forth and she got over-excited or something and threw tea in his face and then kicked him" said Jim Rosamond, who was sitting nearby.

Police were on scene within minutes and witnesses say that is when Fulk calmed down.

"They walked her around the car and put her in the car; she didn't look like she was fighting them or anything," said Rosamond.

The arrest report shows that that Fulk was arrested at 5:04 p.m. and is charged with one misdemeanor count of simple assault.

Fulk was seen leaving the King Police Department on Wednesday, after speaking with Police Chief Paula May. However, Fulk refused to speak with our crew.

Fulk was released on a written promise to appear. Her court date is set for Dec. 9.
