BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — While reporting on the needs of Kingston residents looking to move out before the facility closes, a security guard confronted a 17 News crew on Thursday.

17’s Alex Fisher and a photojournalist were outside the facility to report that residents needed suitcases to move their belongings, when the security guard approached Fisher and the photojournalist and told them to leave claiming they were on private property.

Fisher said the security guard took his phone and wallet, pulled a microphone and took a camera and shouted profanities, all of it caught on camera. Bakersfield police issued an official citation to the security guard for misdemeanor battery.

Friday, Kingston officials issued a response to the incident:

“The administration at Kingston Healthcare Center has been made aware of the incident involving the security guard and members of the KGET news team and have seen the video report.  We do not condone this behavior and sincerely apologize to Alex Fisher and the entire KGET news team. The incident is being investigated and swift action will be taken.”
