The Mayor of Havre de Grace, James C. Vancherie, was punched in the mouth by an irate citizen. The 35-year-old Havre de Grace man surrendered to police after he walked into Vancherie's office and allegedly struck him. The mayor told police the man, wearing torn pants legs, asked, "Do you own a white shaggy dog?" When the mayor answered that he did, the man told him that the dog had just bitten him. After striking the mayor and hitting him in the mouth, the man allegedly replied, "If I see this dog again I am going to kill it." Vancherie went to Harford Memorial Hospital where he required several stitches and also received a tetanus shot.
