A video surfaced this week, apparently shot on Election Day last month, depicting what appears to be Essex County Democratic Chairman Leroy Jones getting physical with a 75-year old Army veteran.

According to an ABC News report, Jones has been charged with a misdemeanor related to the fracas.

Two sources told PolitickerNJ that Jones responded to the other man in the video, identified by ABC as Bill Graves, after the latter allegedly made a derogatory comment about Jones’ wife.
