During a union-led protest over Michigan's now-enacted right-to-work law, Fox News contributor Steven Crowder was attacked and even punched in the face by unruly union members. The entire ordeal was captured on camera by Crowder's crew and it appears to show an open-and-shut case of felony assault.
However, being the understanding man that he is, Crowder is offering his attacker a way to stay out of jail and keep a felony off his record. And it is unconventional, to say the least. He says he won't press charges, but he wants a "one-on-one" with the man who sucker punched him.
"He can go to jail, or compete with me in a sanctioned bout for charity," Crowder told TheBlaze, adding that he is completely "serious."
While it may seem like an easy choice for the union activist, he should keep in mind when making his decision that Crowder is schooled in both mixed martial arts and wrestling.
“I’m talking about lock us in a racquetball court for a whole sanctioned mixed martial arts bout, or boxing bout, or wrestling bout – whatever he wants,” Crowder told TheBlaze. “He can name the terms and I will face him one-on-one if he wants to avoid prison.”
Something tells me that is a fight that a lot of people would pay to see. No word yet from his attacker.
Meanwhile, an anonymous donor is reportedly offering $1,000 for information leading to the arrest of the union member who struck Crowder, while Glenn Reynolds, a.k.a. Instapundit has offered another $1,000 and Dana Loesch another $200. The donation page can be found here.
"If he wins, the money raised to find him will go to the union of his choice," Crowder added.
