Lawmaker Mugged Overnight
Sen. Sue Errington (D-Muncie) learned first-hand overnight just how out of control Indy's crime has gotten. She was punched in the face and had her purse snatched from her arm as she left a CVS at 56th Street and Illinois on the city's northside according to WXNT. Errington was not seriously injured according to the report. Mayor Peterson is scheduled to deliver a major speech tonight announcing his plan to deal with the city's rising crime problem as he prepares to seek re-election to a third term this year.
