If I hadn't seen this on CNN's World News two days ago, I would not have believed it really happened. It was like a Monty Python skit:
Peter Silverman - a reporter - wanted to question the optician Adam Plimmer after several consumers complained to him that they had not yet received glasses which they had paid for.
Adam Plimmer assaulted the elderly reportedly by hitting, spitting and hurling snowballs. It was just unbelievable.
