At one point, one of the protesters, ... was confronted by Richard Brysac, 77, of Parma.
Brysac attempted to quiet the protestor by emptying a bottle of water in Neal's mouth.
"He seemed thirsty, so I tried to shove the bottle in his mouth," Brysac said. "I thought it was wrong to interfere with [Pawlenty's] freedom of speech. "I acted out of character and I apologize if I offended anyone."
When the bottle didn't work, Brysac pulled out his handkerchief and gagged Neal.
