Miami Reporter Gets Bucket of Water Thrown in His Face

Posted: Oct. 2nd, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse
Looking to get an exclusive report in Miami for a story concerning Democratic congressional candidate Justin Lamar Sternad, Michael Putney was greeted at the politicians door with a bucket of water to his face. However, there was a sign on the door that read, “Trespassers will be WET!” He should have heeded the warning sign, literally.

One way to get rid of a pesky reporter: Throw a bucket of water on him.

That's what the wife of a failed candidate embroiled in a campaign scandal did to Miami Local 10 senior political reporter Michael Putney.

The TV journalist came away drenched but not any more enlightened than when he knocked on the door. The caught-on-tape moment has made a splash on the Web.

But the strangest part of the story is that the soggy reporter isn't even the weirdest part.
