'Nervous' candidate violently rips mic from opponent's hands

Description....

A debate between two candidates running for a seat in the Minnesota House of Representatives briefly went off the rails when one of the participants got a little too aggressive. Incumbent Rep. Duane Quam ripped the microphone out of Jamie Mahlberg's hands in order to offer a rebuttal to a question about education funding. He later told a local newspaper that his behavior was inappropriate and was caused by nerves.
