Montgomery GOP chief was at scene

Montgomery County Republican Central Committee Chairman Tom Reinheimer didn't see Steve Abrams' alleged assault on Adol Owen-Williams, but he heard the shouting and separated the two.

"I heard Adol yell out: 'Have you lost your mind? Don't you ever put your hands on me!'" Reinheimer tells Lori Aratani of the Washington Post. "I heard Adol shout it one or two times."

Aratani reports, "When he opened the door to the stairwell, he said both men had their hands on each other's shoulders. He separated Abrams, who is about 5-foot-5, from Owen-Williams, who is about 5-foot-10. Reinheimer said Abrams then left the building."

(Abrams might be vertically challenged but his ample girth and considerable body mass compensate for his munchkin stature.)
