Man loses tooth during fight on Ann Arbor's East Liberty Street
A 29-year-old Owosso man had a tooth knocked out early Sunday morning after three men jumped him following a late night argument on East Liberty Street.
Ann Arbor police Lt. Renee Bush said the man and his girlfriend were walking westbound on East Liberty Street across Maynard Street when they were almost hit by a van. The Owosso man threw up his hands and yelled at the driver and the couple continued walking, Bush said.
Suddenly, the van stopped and three men got out of the vehicle and approached the couple, Bush said. The men were having a heated argument and using some choice language, according to Bush.
The men went back to the van, but one of them continued to yell at the man, Bush said.
The Owosso man was then floored by a strike from one of the suspects who “came out of nowhere,” Bush said. All three men struck the Owosso man while he was on the ground before jumping back in the van and driving westbound on East Liberty Street, she said.
The Owosso man lost a tooth in the scrum but refused medical attention, Bush said. His girlfriend was unharmed.
Police are still investigating the fight and only have a vague description of the men — two white men and one black man, Bush said. Anyone with information on the incident is encouraged to call the Ann Arbor police department's anonymous tip line at 734-794-6939.
