Those day’s are gone. From CNN:

Mike Wallace arrested

CBS News veteran Mike Wallace, 86, was arrested Tuesday evening outside a New York City restaurant and issued a summons for disorderly conduct.

NEW YORK (CNN) — CBS News veteran Mike Wallace, 86, was arrested Tuesday evening outside a New York City restaurant and issued a summons for disorderly conduct.

…Two TLC inspectors saw that Wallace’s vehicle, registered with the commission, was double-parked and approached the driver. According to Fromberg, while the two inspectors were questioning the driver and checking the vehicle, Wallace came out of Luke’s Bar and Grill on Manhattan’s Upper East side carrying a take-out order.

Wallace then approached the two inspectors, Fromberg said, in an “overtly assertive and disrespectful manner.” Wallace was asked to step away three times by the inspectors. Wallace did not comply.

After the third request to step aside, Wallace “[lunged] at one of the inspectors,” Fromberg said.

The second inspector handcuffed Wallace and placed him in an unmarked TLC vehicle. Wallace was then escorted to the 19th precinct and “issued a summons for disorderly conduct,” Fromberg said.Expect to see an expose on the New York Taxi Commission next season on 60 Minutes.
