A man filmed himself pouring beer onto Kelly's head and shoulders, sources told the newspaper. When the veteran TV anchor reportedly swatted away the beer, the man punched Kelly in the face.

Townsquare Media has contacted the Sea Isle City Police Department for more information and we are awaiting a reply.

Kelly was reportedly taken to a local hospital but he apparently did not suffer any serious injuries.

Neither Kelly nor the TV station has issued a statement about the incident.
