NYC Doorman K.O.’s Photographer

Screen grab: Gawker

One New York City doorman takes his job really seriously — so seriously he punched out photographer Tim Wiencis outside an Upper East Side building for trying to get a shot of  the wife of latest Ponzi scheme mastermind Ken Starr. The doorman was arrested for assault.

It should be noted that Wiencis was on a public sidewalk covering a news event as part of his job, and the doorman was certainly out of line — inexplicably resorting to violence to protect…what? A very possible criminal who lives in his building. It doesn’t seem worth it.
