An unidentified woman who chased WESH reporter Greg Fox was caught twice yesterday: once on camera and once by Orlando police who subdued her with pepper spray.
The Orlando NBC affiliate said the crews on scene didn’t know why she went after them. In the video, Fox can be heard saying he is running away as the woman stalks him.
Orlando police, who were investigating the shooting of a fellow officer nearby, responded quickly. But not before the woman hit a news van and yelled, “I got news for you.” She then punched a cameraman who ran over to check on a camera she had just knocked down.
WESH reports the woman was taken for a mental health evaluation. No one was injured in the incident.
