Placing a hand on a person’s chest generally constitutes the crime of Battery, the unlawful touching of another without authority. Sounds as if the so-called “hearing” was just a formality to codify a fait accompli decision. They probably noted that the resident was given an opportunity to speak and address the BOD but was a “no show” thus closing the books.
I would be concerned about the representative of the BOD (security???) touching a resident.
