Now on the WFAA Site, Brett Shipp's Account of His Violent (?)Run-In With John Wiley Price
Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price was involved in a physical confrontation with WFAA-TV Reporter Brett Shipp on Wednesday morning.The story says Shipp, who was following up his stories about Wai-Wize and Willis Johnson and those satellite dishes for which the county clearly overpaid, was "not seriously harmed." And there's video coming at 5, 6 and 10. Tune in. Hard.
The incident took place around 11:30 a.m. at the commissioner's county office on Langdon Road, south of I-20.
According to Shipp, Price used his arm and the heel of his hand to physically remove Shipp from his office.
Price also threatened to "split my throat" according to Shipp.
Update at 2:43 p.m.: The video's been posted. Some of it, anyway.
