Miller Guards Handcuffed Journalist

Security guards for Alaska U.S. Senate candidate Joe Miller (R) handcuffed and detained the editor of the Alaska Dispatch at a campaign event in Anchorage, the Anchorage Daily News reports.

Tony Hopfinger was handcuffed by the guards and detained in a hallway at a school until Anchorage police came and told the guards to release him.

Miller's statement: "While I've gotten used to the blog Alaska Dispatch's assault on me and my family, I never thought that it would lead to a physical assault. It's too bad that this blogger would take advantage of a Town Hall meeting to create a publicity stunt just two weeks before the election."
