Redner Gets Chair Thrown at him on Cable Access by Mitch E.Perry08/07/06
Hillsborough County Commission candidate Joe Redner says he wants to move on after having a chair thrown at him on a cable access program over the weekend.
Redner was a guest on a program called Ã¢â‚¬Å“The Bleepin TruthÃ¢â‚¬?, where he went up against a man named Tony Katz, who the Tampa Tribune describes as a Republican and internet radio host.
The two panelists, who have previously verbally dueled on the television show in the past, then got into over IsraelÃ¢â‚¬Â¦At one point Redner objected to being called a liarÃ¢â‚¬Â¦He then called Katz Ã¢â‚¬Å“fatÃ¢â‚¬?.(roll tape# o.q.Ã¢â‚¬?here you are, JoeÃ¢â‚¬?)
At that point in the show (which can be seen on the Internet at bleepintruth.com)Katz throws off his microphone clipped to his body and storms off the set Ã¢â‚¬â€œ but then immediately tosses a chair towards Redner (roll tape#2 o.q.Ã¢â‚¬?that is assaultÃ¢â‚¬?)
Redner will not press for chargesÃ¢â‚¬Â¦But he did talk to WMNF about the incident (roll tape#2 o.q.Ã¢â‚¬? it felt like I wonÃ¢â‚¬?)
