The victim, now Chatfield’s sister-in-law, has filed a criminal complaint against him with the Lansing Police Department — which the city has referred to the Michigan State Police, according to CityPulse.

“Chatfield’s father, Rusty, is the pastor of the church and the administrator for the school,” CityPulse reports. “Before Chatfield ran for the state House in 2014, he was a teacher at the school, as well as the men’s soccer coach and the athletic director.”

Chatfield, known for his anti-LGBTQ politics, was elected to the state House in 2014. He became the state’s youngest speaker of the House in 2019.
If you follow me, you might remember the time Lee probably thought to himself, "I really should not have tried to get a gun onto this plane"https://t.co/gWzxN2PlaK

“He briefly served as CEO of Southwest Michigan First, an economic development group in the Kalamazoo area. However, controversy over his anti-LGBTQ politics led him to resign the position last February,” CityPulse reports. “During his time in the Legislature he was also arrested at the Pellston Airport in northern Michigan for attempting to bring a loaded handgun onto an airplane. He did not face criminal charges for the incident, but did have to pay a fine for having an unregistered firearm as well as a fine to the Transportation Security Administration.”
