HARRISON TOWNSHIP, Mich. – Police are investigating an assault on an LGTBQ+ couple in Macomb County.
Anthony Hamilton is traumatized after a vicious assault that landed his partner, Michael Hall, in the ICU at McLaren Macomb Hospital.
Hamilton said the driver yelled slurs at the two and followed them for a while before the man exited the white sedan and took a swing at Hall.
“He socks Mike in the face and he fell onto the blacktop and doesn’t move,” Hamilton recalled.
Hall was in critical condition and is now improving from a brain bleed, skull fracture, broken nose, fractured eye socket and memory loss.
A witness said the passenger in the sedan was yelling for the driver to stop, but was unable to stop him.
The Macomb County Sheriff’s Department is investigating if it is a hate crime. Hamilton said he will speak with investigators again to emphasize that slurs were used before the attack.
