Station reporter Bailey Hurley also spoke about the incident on Twitter.

“THIS is why reporters don’t engage w/ people who try to talk to us on the street.,” Hurley wrote. “Also why I refuse to ever acknowledge anyone who honks at me or tries to chat at a stoplight. We don’t know your intentions and most importantly, WE JUST WANT TO DO OUR JOBS IN PEACE!”
