Inside MSNBC's Shaquille Brewster Life With Family And Partner
On August 30, MSNBC reporter Shaquille Brewster was accosted by a white man while he was reporting a hurricane Ida coverage in Mississippi.
"Craig, I'm going to toss it back to you because we have a man who is upset right now,"
Brewster very calmly reported the bizarre situation to the anchors in the studio. The harasser is identified as an Ohio resident named Benjamin Dagley.
Dagley parked his car and physically charged at the reporter while saying,
"Y'all are reporting this accurately, right?"
He forced Brewster to sign off after his bizarre act.

Reports from USA Today states that the man was also charged several years ago with breaking and entering his former business firm.
The video went viral very soon, and it took no time for police to identify him. As of now, Dagley faces charges of assault and violation of the terms of his probation.
The African-American reporter took to his Instagram to thank the overwhelming amount of support he got after the incident.
Hurdles and incidents like these do make life tough for reporters, but things are surely easier when one's life is blessed with a 'special someone.'
Is Shaquille Brewster Married?
"A beautiful Chicago day with this beautiful lady," captioned the MSNBC reporter on a picture of him with a beautiful woman.
One Hand on the waist and another hand on 'her' hand, the body language from the picture hints that the woman is special someone for Brewster.
That special someone is Sydney Stewart. Stewart is a Brooklyn resident and currently a Director of Social Media for Bet Networks.

Although the relationship status of the two is unknown, Brewster seems to be quite fond of Stewart.
He also posted another Instagram picture with Sydney on April 15, 2018, and captioned the picture, "The Good Life."
The smiles shared in the pictures confirm that he and his alleged partner have a good life alongside each other.
But Brewster has never opened up about his relationship with Sydney and has not made anything official. Therefore, any details of Brewster having a wife or a girlfriend is still unknown.
But one thing he proudly boasts is his life alongside his family. Shaquille, age 27, is a family guy and loves to spend time with his family members.
