Fox Weatherman Viciously Beaten After Standing Up for Old Man on Subway

Fox News meteorologist Adam Klotz attempted to stop a group of teens from harassing an old man on the subway, and the teens gave him a beating.

Klotz wrote on Instagram that he had just watched the New York Giants take a beating of their own, 38-7, from the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFL playoffs. He then headed from the bar to the subway.

Koltz said he saw “this older gentleman was being hassled by this group of seven or eight teens” on the train.

Klotz said, “I was like, ‘Yo, guys, cut that out.’ And they decided, ‘All right if he’s not going to get it, you’re going to get it.’ And, boy, did they give it to me.”

“They had me on the ground. My ribs are all kind of bruised up, too. They got their hits in.”

A New York Police Department representative said, “Juvenile reports were prepared, and their parents were called to pick them up.”

The Post reported, “It’s unclear why the three nabbed suspects were released without facing charges, but an NYPD spokesman ​claimed​ Sunday that the department did not have that option because of their ages​ and the fact that the crime involved an apparent misdemeanor.”

“A ​rep​ for the city Law Department, which prosecutes juvenile crimes in the ​Big Apple, said in an e-mail that the victim ​has​ to file a complaint with the Department of Probation​ before it gets involved. ​Probation would then decide whether to refer the case to ​the Law Department​ for prosecution.”

On Instagram, Katz offered advice for New York City parents: “Don’t let your kids come beat me up in the middle of the night again. Please.”

Koltz tweeted, “While the headline I just read, ‘viciously beaten by teens,’ is true, it’s doing way more damage to my ego than the physical beating did.”

New York City’s subways have reportedly become an increasingly more dangerous.
