The Baltimore Incident Got Her Injured!

When the news broke out, the street was covered up by the protesters, which led to the protest against the cops. Christie and the other five journalists started covering the news on the ground for the next twelve hours. The protest then gradually became more violent because of which the journalist had to be pushed back.
During her coverage of the news, the protestors sprayed her twice with mace. Not just that, they also started throwing beer bottles towards her. After that, five reporters and cameramen, including Christie got injured and rushed to the hospital.
