An aide to Michigan Congressman Sander Levin was arrested recently after he allegedly beat his boyfriend with a shovel in a horrendous attack in Baltimore.

Tim Foster also attempted to stab the victim but was unsuccessful. Evidently, his wife was a witness to the entire incident.

Levin, a Democrat, has served in the House for 32 years.

According to Roll Call:

“Baltimore City Police arrested an aide to Rep. Sander M. Levin, D-Mich., at around 2:30 a.m. on Oct. 8 for criminal domestic violence charges.

Tim Foster, a native of Henderson, Ky., brutally beat his male lover with a small black and red shovel, according to a police report obtained by CQ Roll Call, leaving the victim hospitalized with abrasions and bruises on his upper back, neck and torso.

The dispute started around 12:30 a.m. inside a Northwest Baltimore home, when Foster, 32, got into a verbal argument with the 39-year-old black male identified as his boyfriend…

Foster lunged at his boyfriend with the knife. But Foster’s wife “got in the way” and the knife then fell to the floor, the report states.

The boyfriend told police he attempted to escape the property, but was again assaulted by Foster. This time, Foster struck him in his upper back with a small black and red shovel. Foster continued to assault the man until he got into his vehicle, the report states.”

Levin’s office has no comment.
