The mayor of the town of Stylida in central Greece, Apostolos Gletsos, allegedly head-butted, punched and kicked the deputy governor of the region of Central Greece at a public event on Saturday evening.
According to local media reports, Gletsos, who is also a famous actor, approached Dimitris Kyritsis during an event at the Agroinvest building and asked to him to step outside for a chat.
Kyritsis said that once they were outside the building, Gletsos proceeded to verbally and physically assault him.
Kyritsis was treated for minor injuries at a hospital in the town of Lamia before filing a lawsuit against Gletsos at Stylida’s police station.
The mayor later appeared at the police station and filed his own lawsuit.
