A union protest of a Michigan right-to-work law turned violent today when one union activist punched Steven Crowder, a conservative comedian and Fox News contributor, in the face. Watch the video here: 

Crowder writes on Twitter that his tooth was chipped and he suffered a minor cut to his forehead. The assault began after union members began to tear down a tent of the conservative group Americans for Prosperity.

The Michigan right-to-work law passed the state House today. Governor Rick Snyder is expected to sign it into law very soon.
