WHITEHALL, Mich. (WZZM) -- A dispute between a Whitehall man and his girlfriend ended with the man attacked with a fish, police say.

The 61-year-old man was drawing a sketch of a mounted sailfish in the 1000 block of Livingston Street when his 58-year-old girlfriend became angry and moved the fish, according to a Whitehall police news release.

The mount fell over and broke when she left the room. Upon returning, she suspected her boyfriend was responsible for the damage and had begun hitting him over the head with the fish and poking him with its nose.

The boyfriend was cut on his hand.

The couple had been drinking, and the girlfriend was not arrested because of an apparent health issue.

Police say the Muskegon County prosecutor is slated to review the case for possible charges.
