A live news clip included the man and woman in the backdrop. Phoenix police detained a 60-year-old man after he was captured on video hitting a lady in a wheelchair during a live television appearance, according to officials.
The incident occurred during a KPNX-TV broadcast outside a downtown courtroom. A guy is seen standing behind a wheelchair, conveying a slumped-over woman, over the shoulder of newsman Joe Dana.
The man appears to raise the woman by her shoulders and then lower her on the back of the chair. The footage then appears to show him smacking her on the side of the head. It occurred during the station’s 6 p.m. broadcast, prompting a rush of calls to the newsroom and police, according to experts.
