Republican congressman threatens reporter on camera

Republican congressman Michael Grimm of New York was interviewed after the President’s State of the Union speech, and apparently didn’t like one of the questions the reporter asked him. After the interview was over, he walked back into view and allegedly threatened the reporter on camera.

The video is hard to hear because it’s of a TV screen, but officials with the TV station said Grimm physically threatened the reporter, and they say they’ll have the full video up on NY1’s website soon here.

UPDATE: NY1 has posted the full video and better audio quality, and you can hear the exchanges. Grimm threatened to throw the reporter off the balcony, and to “break” him “in half, like a boy.”
