The always entertaining Democratic gubernatorial candidate Parker Griffith is back at it again.

Things got a little testy Wednesday morning when a radio host questioned Griffith’s time as a doctor. Matt Murphy, host of the Matt Murphy show, said that during a commercial break an irritated Griffith both physically and verbally threatened him. Griffith’s overly-aggressive behavior prompted Murphy to file a police report.

Murphy’s tweet went on to describe Griffith’s tirade in great detail:

This isn’t the first time Griffith has stuck his foot in his mouth on the campaign trail: Earlier this summer Griffith compared Alabama to an Islamic religious war, and said he got stuck “in the butt with a knife” by his own party.
