Jets LB Bart Scott Has Verbal Altercation With Reporter

New York Jets linebacker Bart Scott got into a heated verbal altercation with Jets Confidential reporter Dan Leberfeld on Friday following practice. Scott took offense to Leberfeld snapping a photo of the linebacker, according to ESPN.com.

After Leberfeld took the photo, the two men exchanged insults and tensions rose until Jets media personnel came in to escort Scott away from the situation.

Scott has a history of problems with media members, including making an obscene gesture at a photographer last January. Scott has tried to avoid the media this season, declining to be interviewed on the record.

The linebacker has been at odds with the Jets at times in 2012, after the team restructured his contract. He sought a trade in the offseason before sticking with New York.
