Taxi Driver in Warren Altercation Dodges Boston Media

Man uses child to shield himself from camera, calls police


The man who allegedly assaulted a Republican tracker following an Elizabeth Warren campaign event dodged ABC Boston Tuesday, and refused to answer questions.

The Free Beacon first identified Tuesday the man as Morgan Reitzas, the owner and president of Vineyard Transport. In the ABC Boston report, he shields himself from the media with his young child, and calls the police.

Reitzas approached a Republican staffer after a Martha's Vineyard event, knocking the staffer's camera out of his hands and telling the staffer, "You’re messing with the wrong people."

The Warren campaign has said Reitzas is not paid campaign staff, and that Warren did not see the altercation.
