Nice! Just got assaulted by someone live on air.— Foti Kallergis (@FotiKallergis) November 5, 2014
The footage shows Kallergis reporting live on various Texas elections. Patrick is heard giving a prayer in the background. At one point, a man is heard telling the reporter to be quiet during the prayer. KTRK cut away before the alleged altercation began.
Watch the video below:
KRIV-TV reporter Isiah Carey reportedly witnessed the incident and claimed KTRK’s Deborah Wrigley had to intervene. Carey also alleged another female attendee called Wrigley a “f***ing b**ch.”
Deborah Wrigley from channel 13 had to step in and stop the Republican supporter (tan jacket) from attacking her fellow reporter (black suit) on the air. The man was offended because the reporter was live on air during a prayer at Lt.Governor Elect Dan Patrick's watch party. Wrigley says then another woman from the event approached her and called her a fucking bitch. Keep in mind this is during a physical assault over interrupting a prayer. Where was Jesus in this room?
