Reporter Attacked In Junkyard Interview (VIDEO)

A Tennessee reporter covering a story about a junkyard lot was attacked on camera by the lot's owner.

Jeni DiPrizio, a reporter for Local 24, was investigating a property in downtown Memphis riddled with junk and a rusty crane when the lot's irate owner attacked.

Video taken by the station shows Nancy Ellis grabbing DiPrizio, hitting her in the head with a notebook, and trying to take the reporter's cell phone.

DiPrizio later filed a police report, according to the New York Daily News.
