HORRIBLE: Fox Weatherman Jumped By Gang Of Thugs In Overwhelmingly Blue City….

 

A bruised and battered Fox News meteorologist claimed on Sunday that eight teenagers jumped him on a New York City subway train after he intervened to stop them from harassing an older male.

Adam Klotz, 37, a FOX News Channel and FOX Business Network meteorologist, posted a video on Instagram showing cuts and bruises on his face after the attack, which occurred early Sunday morning on his way home on the No. 1 train after watching the New York Giants NFL playoff game at a bar.

“My side is worse, so much worse in my face,” Klotz said.

The altercation happened around 1:00 a.m. when the teenagers, allegedly smoking marijuana, attacked and approached the man on the train, police sources told The New York Post.

“I was like, ‘Yo, guys, cut that out,’” Klotz said. “And they decided, alright, if he’s not going to get it, you’re going to get it — And boy did they give it to me.”

Klotz said the teenager held him on the ground and bruised his ribs.

“They got their hits in,” he said, adding, “Where are the parents? Parents, watch your children.”

Klotz stated that the older gentleman he defended left without injury, while the weatherman was x-rayed and treated for non-life-threatening injuries at Bellevue Hospital.

“I’m OK,” he said. “This is all going to heal. So, it’s all good.”

Sources told The Post authorities caught three of the suspects — two 15-year-olds and a 17-year-old — after attempting to flee the subway train at the 18th Street station.

“Juvenile reports were prepared, and their parents were called to pick them up,” NYPD told The Post.

The NYPD spokesman added the department did not have the option to charge the suspects because of their ages, and the crime was technically classified as an apparent misdemeanor.

A 2019 law, however, increased the age for a juvenile to be charged as an adult from 17 to 18 years old.

According to The Daily Mail, crime on New York City’s subway increased by 30 percent in 2022, outpacing the city’s overall 22 percent increase in major crime.

Mayor Eric Adams stated at the end of last year that the city is “laser-focused” on crime fighting, and Bloomberg reported this year that the department would spend an additional $20 million per month on police overtime.

“New York City! What a place. The Big Apple,” Fox News’ weatherman said.
