The school board held an emergency meeting on March 23 after the alleged assault, at which a resolution removing Green from his position passed unanimously.

Charis Lee, the council attorney, said Green can only be removed from the council entirely if she is convicted of a felony.

At the emergency meeting, MacIntyre said she filed a police report after Green’s alleged assault.

“Let me repeat, there was no fighting, there was no arguing, it escalated out of nothing and very quickly,” MacIntyre said. “It was an attack, it was an assault, and I filed a police report.”

MacIntyre said Green “grabbed my throat” and hit his head on the table.

“I was attacked, out of nowhere, for no reason, and there is a person fighting, a person who did the violence, not the board. It wasn’t the board, it was an individual and this individual grabbed my throat, banged my head on the table, repeatedly punched me in the head and the only person pointing was this person, it was Danielle Green “, said MacIntyre.
