A caller to a talk show on FAYETTE BROADCASTING CORP. Adult Standards WMBS-A/UNIONTOWN, PA was allegedly assaulted while talking on the air.
The PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW reports that the caller, BRIAN "ICEMAN" OROS, owner of NORTH POLE ICE in UNIONTOWN, was talking on the phone to afternoon "LET'S TALK" host BOB FOLTZ about whether the city should retain a paid fire department when someone in either a fire truck or ambulance pulled into his lot, cursed at him, shoved him and started a fistfight.
OROS has identified his alleged assailant but Fire Chef MYRON P. NYPAVER said the individual was not on duty and allegations that the man drove a fire truck to the shop are "a crock."
