The president of the Beverly Hills school district’s board was arrested after allegedly shoving an 18-year-old woman in at altercation at his home, police said Tuesday.

Beverly Hills Unified School District Board of Education President Brian Goldberg was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor battery after he shoved the teen during a verbal altercation, Subin said.
Goldberg told the Los Angeles Times that he bumped into a woman who lives with her family in the condominium next door to him after a confrontation about how he was driving in the building’s parking lot.
The alleged victim approached a KTLA reporter in front of the complex, the Hamptons Condominiums, but declined to go into detail about the event.
There has a longstanding dispute between Goldberg and his wife and the family, the board president told the Times.
“We have had bad blood with these neighbors for some time,” he said.
Subin told the Times that Goldberg knocked the woman to the ground.
Goldberg was released Tuesday morning on a promise to appear in court, Subin said.
Goldberg’s position is elected. The school district had no comment.
