    The scene outside of the "balloon boy's" Colorado home turned violent on Sunday, when a stranger drove up to the Heene family’s home and confronted the local Fox 31 news crew that was on the scene, according to Fox 31.
    The man shouted derogatory remarks at reporters outside the home and then confronted Fox 31 reporter Jon Bowman and a photojournalist, witnesses reported.
    When another journalist intervened, the man punched him several times, according to Fox 31.
    "The next thing I know, he jumps out (and started saying) 'I got you now, I'm going to get you people out of the neighborhood,' and he comes up and grabs me by the collar," Bowman told Fox 31.
    "You know, it was all I could do to just stand there and not do anything.”
    Other camera crews recorded the incident, which continued when the man chased Fox 31’s photojournalist around the news truck. The scene ended with someone jumping on the man and restraining him, Fox 31 reported.
    Police arrived on the scene. No arrests have been made
