camping beating, northern michigan beating

(WWJ) An investigation is underway in Benzie County where police say a beach camper was severely beaten by another camper.

According to police, the beating apparently followed a dispute over noise. State Police say the suspect, who was camping on Elberta Beach, asked the people in a neighboring tent to quiet down.

When they didn’t do as requested, the victim allegedly approached the tent and started to unzip the entrance. At that point, authorities say a man inside of that tent came outside, and was assaulted and severely beaten.

He was taken to a hospital in Manistee, suffering from face and skull fractures.

Per mlive, the suspect was wearing white swim shorts and a cowboy hat with an American flag design. Witnesses say he may be from Flint. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 231-779-6040.
