WATCH: ‘I Got News For You!’ Woman Attacks Orlando TV Crews

An unidentified woman who chased WESH reporter Greg Fox was caught twice yesterday: once on camera and once by Orlando police who subdued her with pepper spray.

The Orlando NBC affiliate said the crews on scene didn’t know why she went after them. In the video, Fox can be heard saying he is running away as the woman stalks him.

Orlando police, who were investigating the shooting of a fellow officer nearby, responded quickly. But not before the woman hit a news van and yelled, “I got news for you.” She then punched a cameraman who ran over to check on a camera she had just knocked down.

WESH reports the woman was taken for a mental health evaluation. No one was injured in the incident.

A WESH news van got stuck under an Orlando overpass on Wednesday after the vehicle’s mast had been accidentally raised.

Reporter Greg Fox was riding in the van along with photographer Frank Burt when the raised mast struck the underside of a highway overpass, tipping the vehicle onto two wheels.

A fire rescue crew was called to the scene, according to the Orlando Sentinel, and rescue workers steadied the van using jacks so that Fox and Burt could exit safely.

Orlando CBS-affiliate WKMG reported on its rivals’ misfortune during the station’s  7 p.m. newscast.

The WESH crew told officials that the van had successfully passed under another overpass before the accident, leading them to believe that the mast’s deployment was a technical malfunction. Read more
