Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Ben Shapiro filed a police report Sunday alleging battery against transgender Inside Edition reporter Zoey Tur.

The report follows a tense exchange between Mr. Shapiro and Ms. Tur on HLN’s “Dr. Drew On Call” over Caitlyn Jenner’s receipt of ESPN’s Arthur Ashe Courage Award. Ms. Tur grabbed the back of Mr. Shapiro’s neck and said, “You cut that out now, or you’ll go home in an ambulance,” after Mr. Shapiro called her “sir.”

Mr. Shapiro later alleged that Ms. Tur had threatened him after the appearance, saying, “I’ll see you in the parking lot.” CNN security escorted Mr. Shapiro to his car after ensuring Ms. Tur had left the premises, according to Breitbart News.

Ms. Tur also tweeted “me too” on Friday in response to a Twitter user who said he’d liked to see Ms. Tur “curb stomp” the Breitbart editor.

“Just because the left has designated someone a member of the victim class does not mean that that person gets to infringe the rights of others,” Mr. Shapiro said. “Until the left learns that, their aggression will not stop.”

He said he would be pursuing any possibility of charges regarding alleged criminal threats, Breitbart reported.
