A trial date has been set for a Hanson man charged with flipping a table at a Board of Health meeting last November.

The meeting was videotaped and in the video, Steve Cappellini is heard yelling at the board members and then seen overturning the table they were sitting at.

Defense attorney Jack Atwood expects the prosecution to call about three witnesses to testify and believes  two will be members of the Hanson Board of Health. But Tuesday at Plymouth District Court, Atwood said he’s countering that with eight witnesses who will testify in favor of Cappellini.

The Hanson man is facing several charges including assault and battery on a public employee, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, and threatening to commit a crime.

Cappellini will stand trial at Plymouth District Court July 30th.
