The boyfriend of Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal's chief fundraiser says he's unsure whether protesters were responsible for attacking the couple April 9 outside a Republican event in the French Quarter of New Orleans.
Joseph Brown told police protesters were outside Brennan's restaurant during the Louisiana Republican Party event. But most had left about an hour before Brown and 25-year-old Allee Bautsch left the restaurant.
According to a police report obtained by The Associated Press on Friday, the 29-year-old Brown said a group of men yelled obscenities and taunted them, but he heard nothing suggesting the attack was politically motivated. Bautsch suffered a broken leg in the attack.
The police report does not say what the protest was about.
