Michigan lawmaker Neil Friske accused of sexual assault, gun crime

Republican Michigan State Rep. Neil Friske allegedly chased a dancer while brandishing a gun.

Lansing authorities, Michigan are seeking sexual assault and weapons charges against Republican House Rep. Neil Friske, according to records obtained by The Detroit Free Press.

The 62-year-old lawmaker was arrested in the early hours of Thursday morning after allegedly “chasing an adult dancer after a disagreement” while in possession of a firearm. Ingham County Prosecutor John Dewane's office told the Free press that law enforcement responded to reports of an armed man “as well as possible shots fired.” Law enforcement was made aware of “a possible sexual assault on an adult female” in their response.

In a statement posted to Facebook, Friske's campaign wrote that “Representative Friske is still exercising his right under the 2nd Amendment.” We have no details, other than what the media has provided, oddly enough before any of us knew anything.

After Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel indicted 16 people allegedly involved in a “fake voter” scheme to overturn the 2020 election in the name of Donald Trump, Frisk denounced the charges as “a political purge” and a “USSR-style persecution”.
