Oregon man impersonates cop as he assaults news videographer
Peter Fournier can be seen approaching KATU news videographer Bob Bullock as he was filming footage for a weather report.
Fournier is covering his face as he approaches, then pushes his back against Bullock’s camera. He then calls Bullock a “loser reporter.”
And at one point, he pulls out a badge and acts as if he is a cop.
He later said that he was upset that Bullock was filming children as they were getting dropped off at school – which is not illegal and actually quite common for a news report.
He was arrested for assault, malicious mischief and impersonating an officer. Earlier this year, he was arrested for using a stun gun on a 16-year-old boy as he was dressed in a security guard uniform. Yes, he is one of those.
Bullock ended up with thousands of dollars in camera damage as well as bruised ribs and a cut hand.
