COMMERCE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Authorities are trying to determine who taped razor blades to the bottom of a Trump 2020 campaign sign that sliced the fingers of a worker tasked with removing signs that were too close to a roadway in southeast Michigan.

The Oakland County sheriff’s office says the 52-year-old Commerce Township building inspector needed stitches after cutting three fingers Wednesday afternoon.

The sheriff’s office says a second sign found along the roadside also had razor blades taped “all along the bottom edge.”

The position of the signs violated a township ordinance requiring campaign signs to be a certain distance from the center of the road.
