Kelly Files Assault Charges Against Reporter After Rahm Emanuel Incident

(CHICAGO) – A police report and request for arrest warrant is being filed this morning against CBS2 chief correspondent Jay Levine by broadcaster William J. Kelly. On Thursday evening, Chicago police reviewed a video tape submitted by Kelly of an incident that occurred on Monday at Columbus and Balboa, prior to the Columbus Day Parade, and agreed that Levine’s actions qualified as assault. During the incident, Levine erupted in an outburst and threatened “to deck” Kelly, who had been asking Emanuel tough questions about his Chicago residency and the failed White House stimulus plan. ABC7’s Charles Thomas was also on-tape interrupting Kelly’s questions and knocking his microphone away from Emanuel.

Here is the video of the incident:

“This morning, I am filing a warrant for CBS reporter Jay Levine’s arrest,” says Kelly. “To date, I have not received any word of apology from Jay Levine or from CBS’ management. I know Jay Levine and CBS still believe that they had every right to threaten me and interfere with my questions to Rahm Emanuel and that is precisely the problem. That is why I think it is important to take a stand and counter media hypocrisy and arrogance in Chicago and everywhere else and that is what I am doing today.”

William J. Kelly pens Bill Kelly’s Truth Squad and the Tea Party Report for the Washington Times Communities and is a contributor to He is the host of the Kelly Truth Squad which airs locally on WIND-AM (560). For information, visit
