Alabama was not an exception to the civil unrest underway nationwide done in the name of George Floyd, who died in custody on Minneapolis police.
As protesters took the streets in Birmingham, AL, a group of local reporters including Ivana Hrynkiw and Madison Underwood from AL.com, and Stephen Quinn of local ABC affiliate 33/40 came under assault.
Took a couple blows to my head and my wallet is gone but I’m okay.
