South Carolina TV news anchor, 28, is arrested 'after smashing a beer bottle over man's head during heated argument about politics'

 A heated dispute over politics has landed a TV news presenter from South Carolina behind bars after police say she smashed a beer bottle over a man's head.

Kamie Roesler, 28, a news anchor with WIS-TV in Columbia, was arrested on a charge of aggravated assault in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, on Sunday afternoon.

According to police, Roesler was sitting outside with a group of people at around 4.30pm in the 1100 block of North Prairie Avenue in Sioux Falls when she got into an argument over politics with a 32-year-old man.

What started as a war of words took a violent turn when the newsreader allegedly grabbed a beer bottle and struck the man in the face, leaving him with lacerations possibly requiring stitches, reported Sioux Falls Argus Leader.  

The victim refused medical attentions from EMT workers who responded to the scene but later sought treatment for his injuries on his own.  

Investigators said Roseler and the victim knew each other. 

'They’re not in any type of relationship,' Sioux Falls police spokesman Sam Clemens said. 'The victim said that it was some type of political argument.' 

According to biographical information posted on WIS-TV's website, Roesler was hired as an early-morning anchor at the station in September 2019.

  1. What is the difference between arguing with a fanatical Arab extremist terrorist and with a pre-menstrual woman?
