Police in Los Angeles were called Wednesday after Penn State great Franco Harris and filmmaker John Ziegler confronted NCAA president Mark Emmert about Joe Paterno's firing during the Jerry Sandusky scandal, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported.

During a question-and-answer session, Harris asked Emmert, who had been addressing the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce about academics in the student-athlete model, about Paterno's treatment. Ziegler said right away NCAA officials asked him to stop recording, and police were called.

Ziegler said he and Harris had left by the time police arrived.
