Fox News Contributor Repeatedly Punched By Michigan Pro-Union Protestors Tearing Down AFP Tent

New video has surfaced showing Fox News contributor Steven Crowder being repeatedly punched while trying to stop Michigan pro-union protestors from tearing down a conservative tent outside the state’s capitol.

Earlier this afternoon, we reported that pro-union protestors in Michigan tore down an Americans for Prosperity tent while rallying against the state’s new right-to-work law.

Crowder was apparently on the scene to conduct man-on-the-street interviews, when things seemed to have gotten quite tense.

One protester cursed at him as he attempted to ask a question; another grabbed Crowder and punched him in the head a few times. Later on, as a tent was being torn down, Crowder was hit again.

However, being that the video is edited, it is unclear whether the violence against Crowder resulted from something we don’t see on-camera, or what sort of exchange occurred immediately before the punching at 0:38 into the video.

Before the video surfaced, Crowder tweeted several pictures of himself, post-punching, allegedly suffering from a chipped tooth (left pic) and what looks like a minor cut on the forehead (right pic):
