Winegrower knocks down journalist

A source yesterday knocked down a journalist in the entrance hall at the local newspaper l'Unions offices in downtown Reims. The violator, a winegrower, is now remanded in custody.

Usually Patrick Bourson mainly performs in the paper, when he is mentioned because of his friendship with far right leader Jean-Marie Le Pen. Last week a theft at Bourson was described by Jean-Francois Scherpereel in an article, where the word "dodgy" was used. Apparently Patrick Bourson did not like this.

The story is so unusual, that it today travelled around in wine media like Decanter.com.

The next part of the story will take place in court.
