Jeff Chirico, an investigative reporter for Atlanta's CBS affiliate WGCL, was doing a story about a man who owned a used car lot. Richard Wilder, a 43-year-old man who has operated multiple used car lots, was suspected of using his newest lot to solicit customers for his tax preparation services. So channel 46 set up a hidden camera investigation (you're probably asking, "What can go wrong with this?").
Chirico approaches Wilder for a comment at the car lot, but to no avail. Then, Wilder's father, Donald, wanted his 15 minutes of fame. He punched Chirico in the chin and knocked him to the ground.
