Zoo Owner Charged with Battery After Allegedly Attacking KSNV Reporter on Camera

ksnv_zooA Las Vegas zoo owner has been charged with battery after allegedly attacking KSNV reporter Amber Dixon while she was asking for an interview.

In the video of the incident [click here to view], Dixon and photographer Justin Michel go to the door of Pat Dingle, the owner of a local zoo that had recently been closed by the US Department of Agriculture. Dixon knocks on Dingle’s door. He opens it and shuts it.

The anchor who voiced the track said Dingle didn’t tell the crew to go away. But adds,”13 seconds pass in the dark until the door finally opens and Dingle’s fists are suddenly flying.” In the video you can hear Dingle tell the crew from the Las Vegas NBC affiliate to get out of his house after the scuffle.

>UPDATE: Dixon told TVSpy her left shoulder and the left side of her neck are sore after the incident, but otherwise she said she’s doing fine.

Police spokeswoman Laura Meltzer told the Las Vegas Sun, Dingle has been charged with misdemeanor battery.
