WWJ is reporting that at about 6 a.m. a suspect came up to the station’s car and struck the windshield and driver’s-side window with a baton while the station’s reporter, Mike Campbell, was in the middle of a live report on a fatal pedestrian crash at Dexter Avenue and Davison Street.
Campbell said in a report that he had put the windows up because he had started his report and saw the man walking in front of the truck. The man was saying “foul words,” Campbell said, and “apparently, just, something angered him. He turned around and attacked the news truck.”
“My truck just got hit by a bat and I’m sorry, guys, I’ve gotta go,” Campbell said while reporting live.
WXYZ reporter Nia Harden and photojournalist Mike Krotche were also on the scene and were approached by the man, who, the station reports, smashed the windshield and damaged the side mirror of the their live truck.
Both media outlets are reporting that the man is in custody.
