Reporter Assaulted By Probation Officer Following Louisiana Senate Debate

wgmbeditedEarlier this month, much of the headlines flowing from the Louisiana Senate debate flowed from former Ku Klux Klan member and Donald Trump supporter David Duke fighting with the moderator and saying he wasn’t opposed to all Jews.

However, it appears that we are still getting news from that whole crazy affair.

As protests were occurring outside the debate, reporters from local news station WGMB describe the interaction they had with a probation officer who pushed one of them.

Apparently, as Duke was leaving the area, things got a bit heated with protesters. During that time, one of the reporters showed footage of an officer breaking his camera. The other reporter confirmed the incident occurred.

They both acknowledged that the scene was chaotic and and tempers were flaring as Duke was escorted out.
