‘I Hate Fox News!’ Man Allegedly Attacks Person In Fox Halloween Costume

A 29-year-old California man allegedly reacted angrily over the weekend when he saw someone dressed up as a Fox News reporter for Halloween.

From the San Jose Mercury News:

At downtown Santa Cruz’s annual parade on Friday night, police said, 29-year-old Sean Kory said “I hate Fox News” before grabbing the victim’s microphone prop. The dreadlocked Kory then made an obscene gesture with it before attacking the victim with an aluminium tennis racket, police said.

The victim wasn’t injured, but he called police, who ran down the suspect as he attempted to flee.

Kory, a Santa Cruz resident, was arrested and booked into the county jail, Deputy Police Chief Steve Clark said in a news release.

Police weren’t immediately available to say whether Kory was also in costume — or why he had a tennis racket.

There’s got to be a less violent way to get Bill O’Reilly to label you a “pinhead.”
