"You're a real big shot, you're a real big shot shooting your mouth off," Christie shouted.

"Just take care of the teachers," the man retorted.

Christie walks towards the man and warns him to "keep walking away."

A member of Christie's party eventually diffused the situation by escorting him away in the opposite direction.

The incident comes just days after Christie called a reporter "stupid" and an "idiot" for straying off topic at a news conference.
