WI Supreme Court Justice Prosser Grabs Fox Reporter's Microphone


Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice David Prosser didn't do himself any favors with this interview by Fox6 in Madison Wisconsin today. Reporter Mike Lowe attempted to ask Prosser about the allegations that he grabbed fellow Supreme Court Justice Ann Walsh Bradley around the neck.

Here's more from Fox6 -- EXCLUSIVE: FOX6 talks to four of the seven Wisconsin Supreme Court Justices:

Grabbing the microphone - and the spotlight. Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice David Prosser did both when FOX6's Mike Lowe attempted to speak with him about the serious allegations of a physical altercation with Justice Anne Walsh Bradley on Thursday.

Six of Wisconsin's Supreme Court Justices witnessed an alleged physical altercation between Prosser and Bradley in Bradley's chambers on June 13th. [...]

On Thursday, when FOX's Mike Lowe asked Justice Prosser about the alleged incident, he grabbed the FOX6 microphone and then gave it back. Prosser did not answer any of Mike Lowe's questions.

FOX6 News could not find Justice Bradley and she hasn't responded to requests for an interview. But Mike Lowe did speak with Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson, who witnessed the altercation.

Justice Abrahamson said, "This matter is under investigation by the sheriff's department and the judicial commission and let's wait and see how that turn out."

Justice Annette Ziegler did not answer questions Thursday either. She only told Mike Lowe, "I really don't have a comment so thank you very much. I hope you have a nice day."

The Dane County Sheriff's Department is conducting a criminal investigation and the Wisconsin Judicial Commission has opened an investigation to see if the Code of Judicial Conduct was violated.
