    I got attacked by a guy while shooting a story for the television station I work for today (KCTV) Kansas City CBS. The guys son had just got charged with trying to have sex with a 14 year old girl and I was shooting a shot of their house when the guy and his wife first tried to run me over with his truck then got out and started attacking me. I am a little cut up and bruised but I think I will be ok(maybe). If you live in Kansas City you can see this story tonight at 10pm on ch5 or look for it later on our internet site www.KCTV5.com. Oh and you can see me in a interview during the story(kind of weird being on the other side of the camera).

    Kansas folks need to know who's a sick father.
    Pics are good.


    You will likely be involved in the case now, help nail his ass, he tried to bust yours.

    Peace>jef.

    How old is the son? A statutory kind of story? Interestingly, in Canada the age of consent is 14.
    Not a commentary at all, just an observation. Glad you're ok...scary stuff.

    Should've beaten 'em over the head with the camera, and then have the station charge him for 50 grand due to the camera breaking because he attacked you.

    Frankly, while I'm sorry you were attacked, I'm always hesitant to judge people in this kind of situation. The accusation could be completely bogus, in which case I'd be pissed about media sticking their noses into my family life (no offense intended toward you or your job). I wouldn't attack the camera man, but I would probably be a little less than cordial.

    jamluck13 you can view the footage/story for yourself at www.KCTV5.com The local DA had a press conference and layed out the case/charges against the man, it was his new step father that attacked me. As I said before I was shooting a shot of the house where the man charged lived when his step father tried to run me over with his truck then got out with his wife and both attacked me(I had never seen these people before in my life). The man got out of jail this afternoon. I really do not care what the story is once you lay hands on someone everything changes . That and my Panasonic DVC camera is trashed, he is looking at the better part of 30K to replace it.

    Did you get him trying to come after you (any of the three) on video? That would be GREAT! Good evidence for another case of battery.

    Yes the whole thing is on tape, from the shot of the house through the attack until the camera hit the ground and broke. I was on public property on the street across from the house standing behind my news car with the camera on a tripod when the whole thing started.

    Can you give a direct link to the video? There are about ten million videos on your station's site.

    Yup, you have ever right to film someones house, no laws against it that I'm aware of.

    Like I said, nothing against you. The additional details you filled in help solidify your case, too.
