WATCH: Turmoil ensues after Clinton and Trump supporters brawl at Michigan polling place
A physical brawl broke out Tuesday at a polling place in Michigan after a man interjected himself into a verbal altercation between two women—one a Hillary Clinton supporter and the other a Donald Trump supporter.
According to WHAS-11, an ABC affiliate, the incident occurred in the Ypsilanti Township when two female voters who had just voted began arguing over their candidates.
“A male subject interjected himself into the argument, ended up pushing down one of the females and then more people started getting involved in this back and forth verbal altercation,” Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Derrick Jackson told the Detroit Free Press. “It all began with them arguing back and forth about their particular candidate.”
Authorities arrived at the polling location and de-escalated the tense scene. According to the spokesman, officers declined to arrest anyone for the brawl, but he noted a report will be forwarded to the county prosecutor.
Jackson said it’s unclear who the man was supporting.
