BOSTON —

A reporter trying to question the Democrat seeking to replace Edward Kennedy in the Senate has been involved in a scuffle with one of her advisers.

John McCormack of the Weekly Standard fell Tuesday night near Attorney General Martha Coakley. He was audiotaping her while trying to pass a metal grate on a Washington sidewalk.

Photos and video show Coakely adviser Michael Meehan trying to help McCormack up.

A scuffle broke out as Meehan tried to block McCormack and determine whether he was an operative of a rival campaign. Coakley is shown ignoring McCormack.

Meehan issued a statement Wednesday apologizing for being "a little too aggressive." He says he called McCormack to apologize.

Also seeking the seat are Republican Scott Brown and independent Joseph L. Kennedy, who's unrelated to the late senator.
