Channel 8′s Brett Shipp says on his Twitter stream: “I was just assaulted by John Wiley Price. Details to follow.” Then: “Jwp goes on to threaten to ‘split my throat.’” I’ve got a message in to Shipp asking for details.
Update (12:56): Shipp told me he was too busy to talk. Understandable. He was writing. Here’s the story on Channel 8′s site. Two things about the story: 1) I love that the byline is Shipp’s and that he writes in the third person. E.g.: “According to Shipp, Price used his arm and the heel of his hand to physically remove Shipp from his office.” 2) The story says: “Brett Shipp was not seriously harmed.” It sounds to me like that should read, “Shipp was not harmed at all.” That said, I look forward to seeing the video at 5.
