The Michigan State Police have completed their investigation into the strange ruckus involving Fox News contributor Steven Crowder in mid-December on the grounds of the Michigan Capitol in Lansing. Crowder, covering the labor protests against the state’s right-to-work legislation, got into a fight with protesters, with the ugly footwork and flailing bodies getting prominent rotation on Fox News and sites across the Internet. The footage shows Crowder taking some fierce shots from an angry man.
After some media appearances, including some entertaining back-and-forth on Fox News’s “Hannity,” Crowder pressed charges.
Michigan State Police spokeswoman Shanon Banner tells the Erik Wemple Blog that the investigation was referred to the Ingham County prosecutor’s office. Stuart Dunnings III, the prosecutor, tells us that he has decided how to proceed in the case but hasn’t yet notified the Michigan State Police of his decision.
