Journalists and reporters often get a tough rap, especially when covering news stories that require digging up information on a person's wrongdoing.

But, CBS Atlanta investigative reporter, Jeff Chirico, got much more than he bargained for when he started going after a car dealer charged with stealing tax refunds from his customers.

In the video, Chirico speaks with 43 year-old Richard Wilder, but then meets a man claiming to be Wilder's father. Following a small argument the fireworks begin.
