— A prosecutor was sideswiped in a Durham courtroom.

Assistant District Attorney Tracey Cline was knocked to the ground Thursday in court when the father of a rape victim lunged at the suspect.

Cline got caught in the middle. She said she is a little sore and swollen, but she is fine.

The father was found in contempt of court.
