Philadelphia Meteorologist Attacked with Stun Gun in The Hamptons

Picture 2John Bolaris, former meteorologist at WCAU and WTXF in Philadelphia, tells Philadelphia magazine he was attacked by a cab driver in New York. Bolaris says he and his fiance had just left a restaurant in Montauk and had hailed a cab to return to their hotel:

“I said, ‘We hailed you down,’” Bolaris recounted on Thursday evening from, naturally, a cab in the Hamptons. “Then I said, ‘Listen, just take all of us.’ And he said, ‘No, get away from my cab.’ I said, ‘This is B.S.’ And then I turned my head. And he ran around the cab and punched me in the face.”

After that, says Bolaris, the driver pulled out a stun gun and used it on him.

“I got a burn on my chest,” he says. “I didn’t even see it coming.”

Bolaris, who concedes “it does seem like there’s this dark cloud following me around,” has a history of strange incidents–most notably a run-in with a Russian crime ring, which Bolaris discussed in an appearance on “Dr. Phil”.
