James Ahern – who was working for the fire department – was standing on Robert Pollett’s property when he was taking pictures of the burning barn.
Pollett told him, “this is not a circus,” and ordered him off the property, according to the [__Worcester Telegram.__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/1116)
Ahern started walking off the property when Pollett ran towards him and tackled him.
Ahern, who takes pictures for the fire department for training purposes, suffered a cut to his head.
The fire department will likely seek charges against Pollett.
