Jets linebacker Bart Scott had to be restrained by a team employee after threatening a reporter in the locker room this afternoon.

New York Post reporter Bart Hubbuch chronicled the series of events in a series of tweets. Scott has had his fair share of issues with the New York sports media recently, even going so far as to declare a media boycott last week to USA Today.
