Police Say They Know Who Rushed NBC News Reporter and Yelled at Him to Report ‘ACCURATELY’

Police say they figured out who rushed an NBC News reporter during a segment on Hurricane Ida. He is Benjamin Eugene Dagley, of Wooster, Ohio, officers said in a statement. Officers are after him on two counts of simple assault, one count of disturbing the peace, and one count of violating an emergency curfew.

He parked a white truck, stepped out, and jogged right to Brewster. The man, wearing a white shirt, said something to the effect of “You’re reporting this accurately, right?”

Brewster tried to diffuse the situation by directing the camera away and continuing his segment.

“We deal with some people every once in a while,” he said, before attempting to continue the segment. The man in the white shirt, however, began to screaming, apparently telling them to report “ACCURATELY.” He got right in Brewster’s face as reporter blocked him with an arm and the feed cut back to the studio.
