WATCH: ‘GoodBye!’ WUSA Crew Attacked While Covering Home Invasion


A WUSA crew was maced and punched while covering a home invasion in Washington, DC where the station said several people were held hostage overnight.

Reporter Bruce Johnson and photographer Daniell Gill caught the attention of a woman inside the house who demanded the CBS affiliate’s crew leave and repeatedly told them, “Goodbye.” When they told her they were standing on public property, she sprayed mace at them and then got physical with them until they agreed to go.

“We don’t know who the young woman was in that video,” said Johnson on-air. “It’s possible, just possible she could have been one of those people held hostage at gunpoint inside the house.”

Johnson said neither he nor Gill will file charges saying they don’t know what she had gone through before they got there. He said they’d leave that up to the police.
