The president of the Beverly Hills Unified School District board spent the night in custody for allegedly pushing a female neighbor to the ground after she accused him of “unsafe driving” in the garage of their condominium building, police reported.
Brian Goldberg, 42, was arrested after officers went to the condo building in the 200 block of Tower Drive about 7:45 p.m. Monday, said Beverly Hills police Lt. Lincoln Hoshino.
Goldberg, who was booked on suspicion of battery, was issued a citation and released about 8 this morning, pending a May 4 appearance at the Los Angeles Airport Courthouse, police said.
An 18-year-old woman living in the building told police that an argument about Goldberg’s alleged “unsafe driving” in the garage continued into an elevator.
“The victim alleged that Goldberg shoved her while in the elevator, causing her head to strike the interior of the elevator,” Hoshino said. “After the elevator door had opened, Goldberg again (allegedly) shoved her, knocking her to the ground.”
The woman, whose name was not released, called police, he said.
Hoshino said “officers observed visible injuries to the victim,” who was treated by paramedics for complaints of head and shoulder pain.
