Talk about a rough day at work!

24-year-old news reporter Abbey Niezgoda was sent to interview the mother of a teenage daughter who was shot during a graduation party.

The daughter has been released from the hospital and is recovering at home, but her mother, Melissa Lawrence, became incensed with the news crew that gathered outside her home.

According to Niezgoda, Lawrence first hurled a rock at her photographer. She later emerged from her house with a baseball bat and sicced her two pit bull terriers on the rest of the crew.

Niezgoda escaped the hostile situation, but suffered a bite to her forearm.

Lawrence was later arrested and charged with two counts of felony assault.

Watch Niezgoda’s report below:
