You’ve probably heard about Fox 2 reporter M.L. Erick being shoved by police while trying to ask a Detroit councilman a question outside of a public┬ámeeting Tuesday night.

Everyone seems to have an opinion on who’s to blame in the incident, which was first aired on Fox 2.

This much we know: Elrick, a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter, tried to ask Council President Pro Tem George Cushingberry a question when police shoved the reporter.

Elrick said police used excessive force; Cushingberry said Elrick was in his way.

Who do you think is at fault?

Police are expected to comment on the incident later today.
