Allen supporters get physical with critic

Things got ugly at a Virginia campaign stop when George Allen was making his exit. A University of Virginia law student was reportedly trying to ask Allen some questions about his first wife, but reports disagree on the man's temperament. From the reports that have emerged, it seems safe to say he was getting loud, but not violent. That came later.

And that's where the news cameras come in-- three supporters of Allen accosted the man and actually wrestled him to the floor. Video is at the title link, but you might need Internet Explorer and Media Player to watch it.
