A Forsyth man is facing criminal charges after he disrupted a live television broadcast by shouting an obscene phrase at Decatur Celebration last weekend.
The incident occurred as WAND-TV anchor Sean Streaty was broadcasting live from the event.
During the broadcast, authorities say the 18-year-old man grabbed Streaty’s microphone and shouted the phrase. Video of the incident went viral on the Internet, allowing officials to identify the man.
The Decatur Herald-and-Review says he will face charges of battery and disorderly conduct.
