(CBS ATLANTA) – Investigative reporter Jeff Chirico took a blow to the chin while investigating a businessman charged with stealing customers’ tax refunds. A CBS Atlanta News undercover investigation found Richard Wilder, 43, of Braselton, operating a new business in Gainesville weeks after he was arrested by the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office in September. Shortly after questioning Wilder, Chirico was approached by a man who called himself Donald Wilder, Richard Wilder’s father. As Chirico asked him questions about the business, Donald Wilder turned and punched Chirico in the chin, knocking him to the ground.
