Burlington fireman quits after shoving homeless man approaching him - Seven Days

A Burlington firefighter has resigned after being placed under investigation and cited for assault for shoving a homeless man who was advancing on him.

"The video shows some of what happened next, though there is no audio. The man approaches Mahoney, who extends his arm toward the man. The man continues to approach until Mahoney gives him a slight push backward. The man then takes off a winter hat and throws it to the ground and slowly approaches Mahoney, who again extends his hand and begins pointing at the man. Mahoney then takes a step forward and shoves the man with both hands. The man falls backward and smacks his head on the sidewalk."
