Democratic state Senator Tim Carpenter of Milwaukee was present for the overnight protests and said he was assaulted after taking a picture, the station reported.
WKOW said its crew called 911 to get him an ambulance.
"I don't know what happened ... all I did was stop and take a picture ... and the next thing I'm getting five-six punches, getting kicked in the head," Carpenter told a reporter of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel in an interview following the assault.
