Roberto Spada, the brother of a jailed Italian mobster, brutally assaulted a TV journalist Wednesday.

The attack took place in Ostia, a seaside town in Italy near Rome.

The journalist’s cameraman filmed the entire attack, which included a truly vicious headbutt.

The journalist, Daniele Piervincenzi, was investigating Spada’s alleged connection to CasaPound, BBC reports.

CasaPound is an Italian far-right movement named after American poet Ezra Pound. The group recently garnered 9% of the vote in Ostia’s local elections.

Spada reportedly broke Piervincenzi’s nose with the headbutt, and then continued to beat the journalist with a baton.

Spada was later arrested by police and stands accused of “grievous bodily harm ‘with mafia methods,'” according to BBC.

CasaPound’s vice-president Simone Di Stefano denounced the attack as “deplorable” and claimed that Spada was not a member of the movement.
