A disgruntled Occupy Wall Street protestor confronted WNYW‘s John Huddy this morning, as he was covering the latest developments in Zuccotti Park, and the situation quickly turned ugly.

“This is somebody I’ve come across several times for the last few days,” Huddy told viewers following the altercation.  “He threatened to stab me in the throat with a pen.  He ripped the mic out of my hand.”  Video inside…

“I don’t think this person represents the whole,” Huddy pointed out. “One of the media representatives asked me not to categorize this one person as representative of the whole group.  Most of the folks I’ve dealt with have been accommodating.  There is an element here that we’ve seen that has caused problems.  Overall, it has been peaceful in the park.”
