Orlando TV Reporter Scuffles With Police And Security Guard

An Orlando reporter was involved in a scuffle with a police officer and a security guard for trying to report on a shooting incident at an internet cafe Tuesday.

Patrick Pegues, a reporter for WOFL-TV, was not arrested in the incident caught on a low-quality video camera.

It is not clear why Pegues and the reporter had an altercation in the first place, but tensions were most likely running high from the shooting where a security guard shot and killed a masked gunman.

Pegues wrote the story on the shooting incident, but neglected to mention anything about his altercation with the security guard and police officer.

But the Orlando Sentinel wrote a short piece on the incident, mentioning a 2007 incident in which Pegues was arrested for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest without violence. Charges were dropped in that incident.

The video of the incident was posted on The Buckethead Show website, which is an Orlando radio show.
