Milwaukee NO NEED FOR A GUN ?
MILWAUKEE, Aug. 16 (UPI) -- Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett was hospitalized Sunday with injuries suffered in a beating by a man at the Wisconsin State Fair, police said.
Barrett was attacked Saturday night by a man wielding a metal pipe who was allegedly accosting a woman in the fairground's West Allis, Wis., parking lot, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.
Authorities said Barrett took out his cell phone when the woman screamed for help and was dialing 911 when the suspect ran toward him and began striking the mayor with the pipe. Barrett was with his family when the attack occurred.
Police were seeking the alleged attacker Sunday, the newspaper said.
The woman in the incident was reportedly uninjured.
