Alaskan reporter detained by security at Joe Miller event

Washington (CNN) -- A private security guard and a reporter from the Alaska Dispatch offered contradictory accounts of what led to the reporter being handcuffed at a town hall-style event for Senate candidate Joe Miller in Anchorage Sunday night.

The reporter, Tony Hopfinger, said he was trying to ask Miller whether the candidate had ever gotten in trouble for politicking while working for the Fairbanks North Star Borough in 2008.

At that point, private security guards hired by the Miller campaign bumped their chests into him and tried to prevent him for asking any more questions, Hopfinger said.

Why am I not surprised? Ask a tough question people don't want the public to here the answer to and all of a sudden you're treated like you're doing something illegal.

It'd be funny if it wasn't so sad.

I guess Miller couldn't flee from the reporters as others have recently and notably have done, so instead he released his goons. Way to go Joe.
