WRAL reporter Amanda Lamb was standing outside the federal courthouse in Raleigh today when all of a sudden – BAM! – something sharp hit her on the head.

She quickly grabbed her head in shock, not realizing it was an errant acorn that attacked her. Lucky for Amanda, she was OK. Lucky for us, it was all caught on camera during today's noon news.

Like a true professional, she kept going despite the pain.

"Raleigh is famous for its acorn drop on New Year’s Eve. I just never thought I would be the recipient of an acorn drop on live television!" Amanda said. "I’m just glad that I was able to hold my tongue and not say something I would regret later!"
