Fox Journalist Punched by Union Protester Avoiding Police Help

Media tour, yes. Police report, no.

If Fox News contributor Steven Crowder wants justice after being assaulted during right-to-work protests in Michigan this week, he sure has a weird way of showing it. That's the word from Michigan State Police, who are ready to investigate and prosecute the man who punched Crowder multiple times on camera Tuesday — if only Crowder would let them.

The video of Crowder taking those punches has gone viral, even as Crowder's story about the circumstances has started to unravel. Regardless of exactly what happened leading up top the punches, however, there's a potential crime caught on film and according to Michigan State Police, Crowder has so far shown no interest in having it investigated.

"There is video footage of him being assaulted. We don't know who the suspect is, but we could do a several month investigation and find the suspect," Inspector Gene Adamczyk, spokesperson for the state police, told TPM on Thursday. "But if Mr. Crowder is not going to prosecute, we have not gained anything, we've wasted resources."
