Police: Woman choked and pushed while trying to leave Ann Arbor party

By Kyle Feldscher

A 22-year-old Ann Arbor woman was choked and pushed by two women when she was trying to leave a party early Sunday morning, police said Monday.

Ann Arbor police Lt. Renee Bush said the woman was getting in her car in the 500 block of Elm Street to leave a party when she noticed several people standing behind her vehicle. The woman got out of her car and asked the people to move, Bush said.

One of the women in the group approached the victim and began yelling at her. Bush said the woman grabbed the victim around the throat with both hands and choked her, causing her to fall to the ground.

The victim attempted to stand up, and another woman pushed her back down to the ground.

The Ann Arbor woman reported the incident to police at 3:28 a.m. Sunday. She suffered minor injuries.

Anyone with information on this incident is encouraged to call the Ann Arbor police anonymous tip line at 734-794-6939 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK UP (773-2587).

I read Renee Bush's name in the news so much I feel like I personally know her.

Asking someone to move over so you can get your car out sounds pretty reasonable to me. It seems someone just likes hurting others and most likely will do so again. Would be nice if a description of the suspects was supplied, as it is we have nothing at all.

Choking somebody is an attempt to do great bodily harm. Who ever is guilty should be tossed in jail.

A girl fight? Must have garnered a lot of attention. Any info from bystanders?

Maybe they just didn't want her to drive after she may have been drinking, just looking out for her safety?
