cell phone1 Man Hits Police Chief With PhoneAn 84-year-old man could face assault charges for allegedly hitting Eastpointe’s police chief in the head with a mobile phone, following a city council meeting Tuesday.

Police say Frank Zundl hit Chief Michael Lauretti in the forehead, as the chief attempted to remove the man from City Hall.

“The only way I can describe it was like a tomahawk chop,” Eastpointe Deputy Police Chief Leo Borowsky told the Detroit News.

Lauretti had a cut on his head and was being examined by a doctor Wednesday.

Zundl’s family isn’t commenting.
