TV reporter attacked while covering story on Spirit Lake Reservation

FORT TOTTEN, N.D. - A WDAZ-TV reporter was attacked Tuesday while covering a story on the Spirit Lake Reservation.

Reporter Adam Ladwig was on the scene of a garage fire at a residence at 3:45 p.m. when two women, later joined by two men, tried to destroy his camera, he said.

He was also forced by a Bureau of Indian Affairs officer to delete his footage, he said, and his camera was damaged.

Devils Lake Police Chief Keith Schroeder told WDAZ the incident will be investigated by the FBI.
