Video: Giant cockroach runs amok on reporter Robert Kovacik during live broadcast



What's scarier than Charles Manson? Almost this cockroach.

During a live television report on the LAPD's investigation into 12 unsolved homicides that may be tied to the Manson family, a giant roach ran amok all over NBC LA's Robert Kovacik. The rodent of insects dashed across the Los Angeles reporter's back and arms, narrowly missing a full face cameo on the man's moneymaker. 

Commence itching.
