Man shoves reporter, screams "N" word on live TV

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 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.

Yup.

I’m getting sick of these web pages bloating my computer with all their multi media crap.

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.

Oh well, he is what he is, he knows what he is, and he’s upfront about what he is. Admission is the first step toward rehabilitation - I think 10 years would be a good start.

“Taylor said the whole incident stressed the importance of paying attention to surroundings and people closeby to be able to identify suspects in a crime. “

Sounds like she plagiarized Juan Williams.

Give me a break, all he did was take her mic. He did a Kanye West/Taylor Swift deal.

Class C Misdemeanor
Assault (by threatening imminent bodily injury or by causing offensive or provocative physical contact)
[Tex. Penal Code Ann. § 22.01(a)(2) and (3), (c)]

Probably just a stiff fine in Texas, and NC too.

I used to go to Myrtle Beach back in the 80's, but haven't been there since then. Sounds like the problems in Virginia Beach have moved down to MB.

I agree! They're throwing it in our faces, they want us to say it. They want whitey to use a phrase that previously denigrated but has since been used as a term of endearment among socio-cultural circles in the black community.

I personally will not deign to the likes of Sharpton, but I think this should ignite a serious, adult debate about the double-standard in this country. Those of us working every day (blacks included) are tired of paying for the wants of those who aren't. Like a deadweight boyfriend or a 30-year old kid living in his parent's house, it's time to call a spade a spade. Get a job or get the Hell out of our way.
