A woman says she was assaulted by a protester at an Oct. 29 campaign rally in Detroit for Tudor Dixon, a Republican running for governor of Michigan.
Wayne County Republican Party chairwoman Cheryl Costantino told local media that a woman protesting the rally bit her on the arm hard enough to leave marks. Detroit's 7 Action News reported the alleged attacker is a special education teacher in the Dearborn Public School district.
The alleged incident reportedly happened at Armando's Restaurant in Detroit, where Dixon was campaigning with her running mate Shane Hernandez and ex-Democrat Tulsi Gabbard, who has endorsed Dixon.
Costantino said she was standing nearby when the protester started to approach the stage, screaming loudly. Worried by the woman's behavior, Costantino attempted to intercept her.
