Since it will be a cold day in hell before we see Mayor Nutter offering to throw down with a TV reporter, please enjoy this 1980 clip of Mayor Frank Rizzo confronting KYW-3's Stan Bohrman who had staked out Rizzo's Chestnut Hill home reporting on a story about Rizzo's significant police detail.

Rizzo boasted of increasing Bohrman's profile after the encounter since Channel 3 promoted him to anchor about a year after this November 10, 1980 encounter.

"They made him an anchorman," Rizzo said in a radio interview. "Tangle with me and you become a star," the late Rizzo was quoted in an obituary of Bohrman who died in 1994.
