Reporter Punched In The Face: Jeff Chirico, Atlanta Reporter, Gets Hit On Air (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

A valiant Atlanta reporter took a punch to the face in pursuit of a story earlier this week.

Jeff Chirico, an investigative reporter for local CBS station WGCL, was looking into a shady businessman when he ran into the man's father. The father, to put it mildly, did not take kindly to Chirico's questions, and responded by first grabbing him (and saying, "it only costs 25 bucks to punch this man in the mouth") and then decking him on the chin. Not to worry, though: Chirico emerged essentially unharmed.
