News Crews Attacked

No serious injuries were reported, but at least two television news crews were attacked while covering the violence and looting along Madison’s State Street Monday night. While a photo-journalist was filming a man going through some looted material, 40-year-old Michael B. Campbell began throwing bottles at the man working the camera. Cambell rode away on a bicycle, but police took him into custody on suspicion of battery, disorderly conduct and resisting. In another incident the same night, demonstrators used spray paint to damage a television station’s camera, hitting the lens and putting it out of commission.
