Cops Called After Brawl Between Two GOP Lawmakers in Michigan

After a fight broke out amongst Republican politicians during a state party committee meeting on Saturday, police were reportedly summoned to the Doherty Hotel in Clare, Michigan’s downtown.

Controversial James Chapman, a Republican from Wayne County, and Mark DeYoung, the chair of the Clare County Republican Party, both discussed the fight with the Detroit News; DeYoung did so over the phone from an emergency hospital following the fight.

DeYoung informed the Detroit News that he will file a police report over the event.

“He kicked me in my balls as soon as I opened the door,” DeYoung told a reporter from the Detroit News, referring to the actions of Chapman.

Chapman lunged at DeYoung, smashing him into a chair, allegedly escalating the altercation, according to DeYoung. DeYoung gave his testimony during a phone conversation from a Clare hospital emergency room. DeYoung claimed to have broken a rib.

Kristin Lee, a fellow state committee member, emphasized on Twitter that there was no argument among those invited to the meeting, and that the fight happened outside of it.

The Clare police have so far not published any more information about the alleged assault.
