Eddie Franklin, the son of music legend Aretha Franklin, was attacked at a gas station in Detroit. Police do not have a motive for the attack, but it appears that he was beaten by at least three men. Detroit police spokeswoman Eren Stephens said a female acquaintance was with Franklin just before the beating took place. The woman walked into the gas station, and when she returned, the assault had occurred. The woman drove him to a hospital, dropped him off and then went to the police station to file a report.
