Still: NBC 13 Albany/New York Daily News

The nephew of former New York State Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos was arrested this afternoon after grabbing the wrist of New York Daily News reporter Victoria Bekiempis and tossing her phone into the street. Bekiempis was covering the criminal sentencing of the elder Skelos, who was convicted of federal corruption charges along with his son in December.

Video shot by NBC 13 and published by the Daily News shows Basil Skelos, the nephew, exiting Manhattan Federal Court through a crowded and aggressive press scrum this afternoon. About halfway through the clip, he can be seen grabbing and throwing Bekiempis’s phone as she attempts to ask another man questions.

After the incident, Bekiempis and other reporters tweeted that Skelos would be charged with third-degree assault.

Dean Skelos, who was convicted of bribery, extortion, and conspiracy, was sentenced to five years in prison. His nephew is due in court for the assault June 27.
