After purportedly stopping eight teenagers from abusing an older man on a New York City subway on Sunday, the group attacked and injured a Fox News meteorologist.
Early on Sunday morning, FOX News and FOX Business Network meteorologist Adam Klotz, 37, was attacked after returning home from a bar where he had watched the New York Giants NFL playoff game.

Reports from witnesses tell The New York Post that at around 1:00 a.m., the adolescents, high on marijuana, assaulted and approached the man on the train.
As for Klotz’s take, he said, “I finally had to tell them to chill out. What this means is that “if he’s not going to get it, you’re going to get it – and boy, did they give it to me.”

Anonymous sources told the Post that three suspects were captured by authorities when they attempted to escape from a subway vehicle at the 18th Street station. The suspects included two teens (ages 15 and 17) and a juvenile (age 14).
An NYPD spokesperson told The Post that “juvenile reports were generated, and their parents were requested to bring them up.”
The NYPD spokeswoman added that because the youngsters’ actions were classified as an apparent misdemeanor, the police could not bring charges against them.
However, starting in 2019, the minimum age at which a juvenile can be tried as an adult has been raised from 17 to 18.
The number of severe crimes in New York City rose by 22% in 2022, but it increased by 30% on the subway, as reported by The Daily Mail.
Despite Mayor Eric Adams’s assurances that the city is “laser-focused” on reducing crime, Bloomberg reported this year that the city would spend an additional $20 million per month on police overtime.
“It’s the Big Apple! That’s incredible; such a fantastic location. There is no place like New York, “A Fox News meteorologist announced.
