A female reporter for the Hill was allegedly punched by an “Antifa” protester in the wake of a deadly car attack in Charlottesville, Virginia Saturday as she tried to film the ensuing chaos.
Taylor Lorenz was filming the site of the incident that left at least one person dead — after a car was driven into a crowd of “anti-fascist” protesters responding to a parallel white nationalist protest in the city. The suspect was identified by police late Saturday as 20-year-old James Alex Fields Jr.
The Daily Mail obtained a video from the reporter which allegedly shows a man punching her in the face:
The reporter took to Twitter to let everyone know that she is fine, but "pissed" because the violent act towards her prevented her from filming.
She has filed charges against the man who apparently had a warrant for his arrest stemming from another incident. That man was taken into custody.
