Police arrested a California man who was accused of attacking a Halloween reveler dressed up as a Fox News reporter.
Sean Kory shouted, “I hate Fox News,” before grabbing the victim’s microphone prop, shoving it down his pants, and rubbing it on his crotch, police said.
The 29-year-old Kory then attacked the phony reporter with an aluminum tennis racket, investigators said.
The victim was not injured in the attack.
Kory, of Santa Cruz, was arrested a short time later and booked into jail.
It wasn’t clear which Fox News reporter the victim was dressed up as or why Kory was carrying the tennis racket.
Kory was one of 32 people arrested by Santa Cruz police in the 24-hour period between Friday morning and Saturday morning.
Police responded to more than 400 calls for service during the Halloween celebration.
