Woman hits reporter with purse

reporter hit with purse

HANOVER TOWNSHIP, PA – A Pennsylvania woman got physical with a reporter as she left court on Tuesday.

Family members tried to block the camera.

And when the WNEP reporter put a microphone in front of Julie Ottaviani, she grabbed it.

When the reporter asks the question again and puts the microphone in front of her the second time, she hits him with her purse.

Minutes before the altercation with the reporter, Ottaviani had agreed to plead guilty to criminal charges.

She admitted posting online nude photos of her soon-to-be ex husband’s girlfriend.

Investigators say she wanted revenge against him, so she created a fake Facebook page using the photos, then added the girlfriend’s 14-year-old son as a friend.
