WXMI Reporter Abigayle Sloan Finds Herself at Center of Violent Attack

WXMI reporter Abigayle Sloan unexpectedly became the target of a woman’s violent outburst Monday at a local towing company.

Sloan was at Weeks Towing & Auto Repair on Monday afternoon to report on the aftermath of a highway pileup that occurred north of Grand Rapids over the weekend.

“I thought I was going there to cover a story about the big pileup, turns out I became part of it,” Sloan said.

A woman entered the shop and began yelling at employees about a towing bill. The tension escalated and the woman began breaking windows, smashing office supplies, and screaming at employees. After having something thrown at her, Sloan locked herself in a closet and called 9-1-1 (raw video above).

Police are still searching for the woman.
