KETTERING, Ohio (WDTN) – A man is recovering in the hospital after he says he was physically attacked over politics in Kettering.
Lee Jackson says he and his friend were jumped in the parking lot of Elsa’s restaurant.
“You know it just happened so quick I didn’t realize what was really going on. Ya know?,” said Jackson.
According to him, the trio tried to move through a group of rowdy people who were talking about President Donald Trump when his friend told them to “simmer down.”
“It was just casually. No bad tone. He was just joking with them in a sense. Just trying to pass through. As soon as he said that. He got punched in the back of the neck from behind,” Jackson said.
According to him there were at least a dozen people who were attacking him and his friend.
