On August 30, MSNBC reporter Shaquille Brewster was approached by a white man while covering Hurricane Ida in Mississippi.
“I’m going to toss it back to you because we have a man who is upset right now,” Craig says.
Brewster very calmly reported the bizarre situation to the anchors in the studio. The harasser has been identified as Benjamin Dagley, a resident of Ohio.
Dagley pulled over his car and charged at the reporter, saying,
“Are you sure you’re reporting this correctly?”
After his bizarre act, he forced Brewster to sign off. Shaquille Brewster was physically abused on live television. According to USA Today, the man was also charged several years ago with breaking his former business.
The video quickly went viral, and police were able to identify him. Dagley is currently facing charges of assault and violating the terms of his probation.
The African-American reporter took to Instagram to express his gratitude for the outpouring of support he received following the incident.
Obstacles and incidents like these make life difficult for reporters, but things are made much easier when one is blessed with a special someone.’
Shaquille Brewster is a married man.
“A beautiful Chicago day with this beautiful lady,” the MSNBC reporter captioned a photo of himself with a beautiful woman. With one hand on the waist and another on ‘her’ hand, the picture’s body language suggests that the woman is a special someone for Brewster.
Stewart lives in Brooklyn and works as the Director of Social Media for Bet Networks. Although their relationship status is unknown, Brewster appears to adore Stewart.
On April 15, 2018, he shared another Instagram photo with Sydney with the caption “The Good Life.” The smiles in the photos confirm that he and his alleged partner have a happy life together.
Brewster, on the other hand, has never spoken openly about his relationship with Sydney and has never made anything official.
As a result, any information about Brewster’s wife or girlfriend is still unknown.
But one thing he is proud of is his life with his family. Shaquille, 27, is a family man who enjoys spending time with his loved ones.
Life in the Family
He, also known as Shaq, has an excellent relationship with all of his family and is not afraid to show it. On May 10, 2021, he shared a photo of himself with his wonderful mother, Sandy Peters, and wished her a happy Mother’s Day.
“You already know how much I adore my mother, so I’ll just say Happy Mother’s Day this year!!”
Similarly to his wonderful father, he said a few words on the occasion of Father’s Day. Happy Father’s Day to the men who taught me how to be a man… each pouring so much love into me, no matter what.
On Instagram, the 27-year-old wrote:
However, his family is not limited to his parents. He is also very proud of his younger brother and sister. He recently celebrated the 19th birthday of his brother, Ezavier, as well as the graduation of his sister.
As a reporter, Shaq must always be present on the field, and the job can be dangerous at times. But, as we all know, he has a family and a’special someone’ to come home to.
