A Florida landlord was charged with battery after assaulting a news crew reporting on rental properties containing broken septic tanks that left residents living among human waste. Tenants complained that fecal matter and other raw sewage was seeping from the ground and into the plumbing for months, but the owner refused to do necessary repairs. Residents also accused the landlord of evicting anyone who alerted the Health Department of the septic tank problem.
The angry man, Nabil Kashik, grabbed a CBS 12 reporter’s microphone before police were called and he was arrested.
