West Virginia News Reporter Attacked While on Assignment
CLAY COUNTY, W. Va. (WGGB) – A veteran reporter was attacked while shooting a story and the footage is shocking.
WCHS ABC 8 reporter Bob Aaron was doing a story about alleged animal abuse when the man at the center of the story went ballistic and swung the camera tripod at him.
“I just can’t believe it was happening. I even think I might know this guy. He just kind of went crazy there for a minute,” said Aaron.
The camera took the majority of the damage. Aaron only received minor injuries. The man charged in the attack told police he felt bad for what happened.
