Former talk host and KIRO radio personality, Mike Webb struck and shoved a photographer in the hallway at 10:45 today as he entered Superior Court Judge, Helen Halpert's courtroom for an omnibus hearing on his felony insurance fraud case.
The photographer, Jeff DeWolf, 59, a local freelancer, was not hurt.
"I will press charges," says DeWolf, who made a police report. "If you can't feel safe do your job in the halls of justice, where can you feel safe?"
The incidence is being investigated by Seattle Police.
BlatherWatch was there, and witnessed the incidence as Webb, striding down the hall in dark glasses broke away from Attorney Mark Larranaga to lunge at DeWolf.
Larranaga yelled "Mike!", pulled Webb back, and hustled him down the hall.
It's not known whether Webb will be charged in the assault case. "It's up to the City Attorney," said SPD Officer Mike Cassidy, who took DeWolf's report and assigned a case number.
Webb was arrested in December on fraud charges after police say he tried to claim damages from an accident he had with an uninsured driver on a Geico insurance policy he bought after the accident.
He has pled not guilty and trial is set for July 12.
