WXYZ Reporter Pelted with Food by Angry Squatters


A group of squatters were menacing a Detroit neighborhood. When WXYZ reporter Ronnie Dahl picked up the story and lead the efforts to have the squatters evicted, she became a target of their food-based rage.

The first incident happened when the reporter for the Detroit ABC affiliate confronted them as they drove away from the house they’d taken over. They threw what appeared to be soda on her and later brandished what looked like a bottle of barbecue sauce as they drove away.

When they drove by as Dahl was doing a live shot covering their eviction they pulled out the barbecue sauce again. “Just so you guys know, you’re live on television,” Dahl told them. “I wouldn’t do that.”

But they did. Watch the story.
