Michigan man injured after being attacked with a fish

WHITEHALL, Mich. (WOOD) — A Whitehall man was injured after police say his girlfriend attacked him with a mounted fish.

It happened around 1:45 a.m. on Sunday. Whitehall police say the 61-year-old man was drawing a sketch of a mounted sailfish in the home, when his 58-year-old girlfriend became angry and moved the fish. The fish fell over and broke when she left the room, and, when she returned, the woman blamed the man for the damage. She hit the man over the head with the fish and poked him with the nose of the sailfish, cutting his hand.

Police say the couple had been drinking and the woman was not arrested at the time due to health issues. The case will be reviewed by the Muskegon County Prosecutor.
