"Passerby tackled after ripping Fox News mic from anchor."

This morning, Fox News reporter Laura Ingle was conducting an interview about the iPhone on the streets of New York City. In the middle of the interview, a passerby came up and yanked her microphone away from her. He then ran away, yelling expletives, before being tackled by members of the Fox News crew. Watch it:
