omg 01/06/2017

An elderly man unleashed his fury on an Australian journalist on Tuesday evening, kicking, hitting, and pushing him outside a court house. 

Channel 9 reporter Taylor Auerbach was waiting to interview 74-year-old Christie Kovachevski after a court appearance in Wollongong.

The man had been charged with burning down his own unit, News.com.au reports.

"Why you ask me? Who you are? I don't like talk to you. F**K off," he yelled at the reporter.

He kicked the reporter in the shin and also hit him with a stick - as the reporter continued to attempt to question him.

The man told the reporter he was kicking him because he was an idiot.
