An L.A. Port police officer won't be disciplined for pushing a TV reporter into a cargo container last summer.The incident was caught on tape. Reporter Alicia Unger of Azteca America was pushed by the officer during an August news conference with Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.

But on Friday, Port Police Chief Ronald Boyd said Sergeant Kevin McCloskey acted within department policy.

Unger has since filed a claim against the city alleging she was injured during the incident.
