Court documents are shedding new light on the incident that left Union head and Deputy Cranston Fire Chief Paul Valletta facing simple assault and disorderly conduct charges.
It happened Saturday. An affidavit says problems started when Valletta made "degrading" comments against Lt. Scott Bergantino in front of fellow firefighters.
From there, the situation which was recorded by Bergantino on his cell phone escalated.
As other firefighters left the room, Valetta and Bergantino stayed behind. Valletta is said to have made some comments about Bergantino regarding a breathing issue.
Next there was yelling and swearing. According to the court documents, at that point Bergantino is heard saying "Go expletive your mother."
