MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) A Charlotte man is behind bars after shoving a WMBF News reporter, snatching her microphone, and shouting expletives on live television Wednesday night.
While standing on the sidewalk at 915 North Ocean Boulevard in the heart of Myrtle Beach, reporter Ashley Taylor was speaking live during the WMBF 11 p.m. newscast concerning the escalating crime rates across the Grand Strand, when she was violently pushed from in front of the camera.
Justin Moore, 20, of Charlotte, NC, jumped in front of the camera after nearly shoving Taylor to the ground. Donning a blue t-shirt and dark sunglasses, the man snatched the microphone from the startled reporter's hand and began shouting the "N" word, in reference to himself.
An unexpecting audience viewing the newscast suddenly saw Moore come across their screen and scream, "I am that [N' word]," before the live shot ended.
In a report from the Myrtle Beach Police Department, officers state they were contacted by the victim who said while she prepared to go live on television she and a coworker noticed a group of four to five males lingering in the area.
When Taylor began talking, she told police, one of the males knocked her out of the way, nearly causing her to fall to the pavement after grabbing her microphone.
Police officers were given pictures of the suspect, who was arrested only moments later. Video of the assault was given to police who placed the recording into evidence.
Moore was placed under arrest and charged with third degree assault and battery. He was released from jail Thursday afternoon on a bond of just under $1,400.

I’m a Northerner too but I don’t act like that.
I have to admit. This was a good one.
I thought it was a Dave Chappelle skit. Impressive.
wasn’t much of an assault... he shouldn’t have done it, but ashley is making more of it than it is.
I hate rudeness, but in all honest I hate TV new broadcasters (and the network bosses) so much that I APPROVE of this.
I think everyone should do this.
Rumspringa youth gone bad.
Another feral Son Of Barack.
Did he let her finish?
Agree, she’s just being uppity.
< sigh >
The perp’s race was sanitized from the report.
I’m getting sick of these web pages bloating my computer with all their multi media crap.
Makes videos jerky and slows down loading of other pages.
Now who could it be that is escalating the crime on the Grand Strand?
I agree. It was more of a prank than anything. He didn’t try, nor was she knocked to the ground.
Typical media twist. If you read the headline, you expect some sort of KKK guy in a white hood. Turns out to be another Son of Barry.
What’s the problem? I thought all blacks were free to use the n word whenever they like, especially when they’re rapping or rioting.
