Reporters fighting can only make me think of one thing, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. Per the police report obtained by FTV Live, Bayatpour had been “ridiculing” one of his coworkers, Madeline Anderson, who is dating Jordan. When Jordan stepped in, Bayatpour is said to have punched him and “caused a significant injury.”
This all went down at the Brewers game, and the Milwaukee TV reporter is facing possible felony charges after police say he punched another reporter during a personal argument at the Brewers game on Friday.
According to a report in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Bayatpour’s attorney, Julius Kim, described it as “an unfortunate incident between friends,” adding that he had been in discussions with prosecutors.
Jordan has declined to comment, and neither man has been active on their Twitter accounts since the incident on Friday.
A spokeswoman for Tribune Broadcasting said WITI was aware of that an “employee was involved in an altercation” and said the company was investigating. What a time to be alive.
