This Woman Really Didn't Want to Comment to Reporters and Made That Painfully Known With Her Cigarette

News

"Get out of my way."

An Australian woman appearing as a witness in a murder case didn't want to comment to the press, and she allegedly made that painfully known to one reporter.

Briskly pushing a baby stroller down the sidewalk as reporters rushed after her, microphones thrust in her face, a 23-year-old woman took her lit cigarette and allegedly stubbed it on Nine Network reporter Alex Bernhardt's face. Prior to this incident, she blew smoke in reporters' faces.

Here's video of the scene:

In the more detailed video posted by the network, after appearing to hit Bernhardt with the cigarette, the woman said "get out of my way." A man following the woman then came up and made a loud shout, like a dog bark, that caused reporters to jump back.

Berndardt, who was not significantly hurt in the incident, told her network that reporters shouldn't have to deal with actions like this on the job. According to Nine Network, the woman was charged with public nuisance.
