Man Pulls Gun on WREG News Crew

A TV crew in Arkansas got quite the surprise this week when a man pulled a gun on them while they were trying to cover a story.

WREG-TV explains:

WREG’s April Thompson showed up at Wilton Goudeaux II’s home hoping to find some answers about his death. With his son and two others in jail, we knew it was likely no one would answer, but what happened next left her shocked.

A speeding truck screeched to a stop as photographer Ben Short’s camera was rolling. An angry young man jumped out . He yelled for the crew to leave.  They told him they were just trying to find out  information.  The man got angry and hit our camera.

When we told him he can’t touch our camera, he said, ‘I bet I can do this.’

And of course they caught it all on camera:

The news crew is now following through with charges of aggravated assault.
