WTVJ Photographer Attacked During Story

By Kevin Eck 

A woman accused of faking her own abduction attacked a photographer from Miami NBC-owned statin WTVJ.

Samantha Martinez first pushed reporter Michael Spears when he asked about the abduction after Martinez was released from jail Wednesday. Then when she saw a WTVJ photographer shooting video, she went on the attack.

“I will knock your ass out,” said Martinez as she headed towards the photographer. “Get your **** outta my *** face.”


She also threw a rock at another station’s crew and was detained by police. She was released after the crews declined to press charges.

Martinez admitted to faking her own abduction to get back at her boyfriend.
