A Dearborn city councilman missed Monday's State of the City address after being assaulted Sunday evening outside Joe Louis Arena.
Robert Abraham, who has served on the City Council since 2002, was attacked after the Red Wings game against the Blackhawks because the suspect took issue with friends of Abraham's son wearing Blackhawks gear.
Abraham's 22-year-old son is a senior at Loyola University in Chicago and came home to see the game with two friends from college.
"This one gentleman took exception to the Blackhawks jersey my son's friends were wearing and became very aggressive," Abraham said Monday evening, adding he tried to calm the man down.
"He just couldn't let it go, and before I knew it I was on (my) back."
Abraham's wife and 14-year-old daughter were waiting on Jefferson Avenue to pick up the group. The assault happened about 10 feet from the car, he said.
