At a public event in Long Beach Friday morning, police officers accompanying Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa scuffled with reporters asking about the mayor and his girlfriend, Mirthala Salina, who was disciplined Thursday as a result of ethics violations at KVEA-TV, the Telemundo local station in Los Angeles.
One of the officers, a port policeman acting as a bodyguard, pushed a female reporter against a shipping container; other reporters at the scene turned to the bodyguard and demanded his name.
The reporter who was pushed said she was not injured but claimed she had been mistreated by police.
