    NBC 5's live camera caught portions of an altercation between a protestor and a TV reporter outside the River North restaurant where President Barack Obama was meeting with supporters.

    The anti-Obama protester tried to grab the microphone from the CBS reporter, prompting a quick scuffle.

    The protestor was eventually taken down by a bystander but wasn't arrested.
