“Fighting for his life”

What began with racial slurs hurled at a car of young black women trying to make a u-turn on a dead-end Sheboygan street led to a fight involving the father of one of the women surrounded by seven or eight white males coming at him, fending off full bottles of beer thrown at him, a shovel swung as a weapon, a large military-style knife thrust towards his abdomen, and a threat to lynch him, according to allegations made in a criminal complaint filed Monday by the Sheboygan County District Attorney.
