In one instance, a Norwegian reporter says that one guard, who a Bachmann spokesperson says is a former Secret Service agent, threatened to break his arm.

In another instance, Fox News reporter Steve Brown could be heard telling an aide to take their hands off him. CNN anchor Don Lemon and ABC correspondent Brian Ross also say they were shoved by guards.

Bachmann won the Iowa Straw Poll last week.
