Jonathan Meador, a freelancer for the Louisville alt-weekly, was covering a local Republican Party Lincoln Day Dinner last week when he was assaulted by local businessman and GOP activist J.D. Sparks, who was apparently trying to get the reporter to stop videotaping the event. Meador will pursue charges of fourth-degree assault and menacing, both misdemeanors, against Sparks.
