Man Arrested After Attacking WPLG Crew

A Fort Lauderdale man has been arrested after threatening WPLG reporter Ross Palombo and photographer Shane Walker and then destroying some of their equipment while they were setting up for a live shot.

The incident was caught on camera as the man, later identified as Louis Dominic Paolino III, at first threatens the Miami ABC affiliate’s crew by saying, “I’m gonna ask you to take that camera off me once.” When Palombo asks the man, “Are you threatening me?” the man replies, “I am promising you that I will rip that thing off your shoulder so quick and beat you down with it.”

Palombo and Walker were covering a story about a man who had allegedly failed to pay his taxes on time. While Walker was rolling, Paolino unplugged one of the crew’s lights and took it inside his house.  He then cut the cord to a second light and broke the bulb to the light with his knife. The arrest report says Paulino pointed the knife at Walker, “threatening to cut his throat.” Read more

Although she refused to appear on-camera, Eugene’s ex-wife told WPLG that the two filed for divorce in 2007 during a violent point in their relationship.

“I wouldn’t say he had mental problem but he always felt like people was against him type of attitude.  No one was for him, everyone was against him,” Eugene’s ex-wife told the station, adding that she hasn’t spoken to him in three or four years. Read more
