Fox News host soaked with water at Brooklyn bar

July 24, 2017

Katherine Timpf, a co-host on the show “Fox News Specialists” and a reporter for National Review Online, said that she was attacked at a Brooklyn bar on July 24, 2017. 

Timpf was there to speak during a campaign event for Ben Kissel, who is running for Brooklyn borough president in New York. 

In a series of tweets, she described in a series of tweets how a man that she did not know walked into Union Pool in Brooklyn and dumped a 1.5 liter bottle of water on her head, preventing her from speaking at the event. 

This wasn’t just some random drunk guy; this was a targeted attack,” Timpf wrote in the National Review. “I know this because I saw the security footage while I was filing a police report. He walked into the venue confidently, saw me, did it, and left. He knew I would be speaking there; I was the reason he was there; that was the reason he was there . . . to prevent me from speaking.”
