Two Reporters from WVLA in Baton Rouge were assaulted covering a U.S. Senate candidate debate. 

The Senate debate was held at Dillard University and shortly after the debate ended, the Reporters say they were assaulted by a probation and parole officer.

Police officers were escorting, David Duke, a former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard and Donald Trump supporter off campus when chaos broke out.

Duke running for Senate participated in the debate, while people protested outside that he was allowed on an HBCU campus.

In the video, you can see the probation and parole officer knock the reporter and camera to the ground.
