VIDEO: Counterfeit Glasses Dealer Attacks Reporter And Throws Snowballs

An optician selling counterfeit and shoddy designer frames slammed a door into the face of a reporter, dared him to fisticuffs, and threw snowballs at a camera crew taping the whole thing. Video above.

First Adam Plimer opens the door really quickly, hitting 75-year-old investigative reporter Peter Silverman in the head. Plimer screams, “Oh, I’m sorry, did I hit you?” Silverman puts his dukes up. Plimer dares Silverman to hit him in the face and shouts, “Go on, get the fuck out of here, I’m sick of you.” Seeing Plimer’s violence, Silverman tries to keep him in the store. Plimer breaks out and throws snowballs at the camera crew and a TCC inspector, yelling, “Get the fuck out of here.” The cops arrive. Plimer opens the door to shout the same obscenities at them. Then a sort of Canadian SWAT team arrives in riot gear. Eventually, they arrest Plimer.

Nothing like seeing a slimeball preying on consumers get taken down hard. — BEN POPKEN
