Reporter fights off pumpkin fest organizer

A New Hampshire pumpkin festival turned into chaos when celebrants started throwing glass bottles and lit bonfires in the streets.

Police, wearing riot gear, used pepper spray and tear gas on the crowds.

When a local journalist tried to report on the melee, he was interrupted, not by someone from the crowd, but a festival organizer.
