Etheridge (D) Apologizes For Physically Confronting a Student

I strongly doubt this will be the end of the story.

"Monday afternoon, Etheridge released the following statement:

“I have seen the video posted on several blogs. I deeply and profoundly regret my reaction and I apologize to all involved. Throughout my many years of service to the people of North Carolina, I have always tried to treat people from all viewpoints with respect. No matter how intrusive and partisan our politics can become, this does not justify a poor response. I have and I will always work to promote a civil public discourse.”

ABC11 has checked with DC Metropolitan Police, who said no assault report has been filed over the incident.
