Argument leads to shove outside Michigan polling place

YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP/WOOD) — Authorities say an argument between a woman supporting presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and another backing Donald Trump near a southeastern Michigan polling place led a man to shove one of the women and spur a larger fracas.

Washtenaw County sheriff’s spokesman Derrick Jackson says the women started arguing outside Tuesday morning after voting in Ypsilanti. Jackson says a man “interjected himself” and shoved one of the women, who fell but wasn’t injured.

NBC affiliate WDIV tweeted cellphone video from the dispute.

After that, he says, other people “started getting into the fray,” but no other violence was reported.

It wasn’t immediately clear how many people were involved or which candidate the man was supporting.

Sheriff’s deputies broke up the argument and took names, but nobody was arrested. Jackson says a report will be forwarded to the prosecutor’s office for review.
