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 â€œThe Bleepin Truthâ€?, 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 Israelâ€¦At one point Redner objected to being called a liarâ€¦He then called Katz â€œfatâ€?.(roll tape# o.q.â€?here you are, Joeâ€?)
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 â€“ but then immediately tosses a chair towards Redner (roll tape#2 o.q.â€?that is assaultâ€?)
Redner will not press for chargesâ€¦But he did talk to WMNF about the incident (roll tape#2 o.q.â€? it felt like I wonâ€?)
