On Wednesday night, Iris Delgado was punched in the head during a live shot in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Telemundo62 journalist was finishing a report on the soda tax when a woman approached her in the middle of the broadcast.
Off to the side of the shot, the bystander — who police identified as Waheedah Wilson — tapped the reporter on the arm saying:
"Excuse me, excuse me."
When Miz Delgado didn't respond because she was focusing on doing her job, Waheedah hit her TWICE while the cameras were still rolling.
The TV personality was seen getting whacked in the back of her skull before also getting punched in the front of her head! You can see the scary clip (below)!
Whoa! That's so terrifying!
After the attack, Iris' news team pushed Miz Wilson away, and then followed her for a block before she was arrested. The 37-year-old was charged with simple assault and reckless endangerment.
Waheedah did not post bail, and is now awaiting a preliminary hearing. Her criminal history also includes a past conviction for drug possession with the intent to deliver.
And as for the reporter, Vice President of News for WCAU and WWSI, Anzio Williams, gave an update on her condition, saying:
"I spoke with Iris Delgado, who was the target of the attack, and I am happy to report that she is in good spirits and that her physical injuries are minimal. She thanks you all for your support and well wishes."
A spokesperson for Telemundo62 added in a statement to People that Miz Delgado will be taking some time off to recuperate after the scary situation, explaining:
"Iris Delgado was the victim of an unprovoked attack by an individual while reporting live for Telemundo62's 11 p.m. local newscast. Thankfully, she is ok and is understandably taking some time off to recover. We look forward to her return."
We're just so glad she's okay. Get better soon, Iris!
The YouTube celebrity posted a lengthy, emotional video revealing that she and her husband are ending their marriage.
While sharing the sad news with her over 4 million subscribers, Colleen immediately broke down, saying:
"I am dreading making this video. I'm just going to say it. Joshua and I are getting a divorce. Man, that sucks to say out loud."
But, Miz Ballinger stressed that her former flame didn't wrong her in any way, adding:
"I want to start off by saying Joshua is a wonderful man, and I am so in love with him. This has nothing to do with he's a bad person, or he did something horrible to me, or anything like that. He's a good person and I love him."
Instead, the singer clarified that they ultimately weren't a good fit together:
