A violent confrontation took place in a committment hearing.
What would have happened if the referee had been armed, you know for personal protection? And imagine if some folks get their way, guys like the attacker will continue to buy guns legally - after he gets out of the nut house, that is.Referee Anthony Schumacher was attacked at the start of a 10:15 a.m. civil commitment trial at the Government Center in Minneapolis, said District Judge Jay Quam, who presides over the county's probate and mental health courts.
Without warning, Truman Harper, 25, rushed Schumacher and hit him at least twice in the face before a deputy and others pulled him away. Quam said Schumacher did not appear to suffer serious injuries.
