Harvey Weinstein assaulted by diner outside Arizona restaurant

Adjust Comment Print

TMZ posted a video of the altercation at Elements at the Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain showing a man slap Weinstein twice while calling him a "piece of s--".

Steve, a fellow restaurant patron, told TMZ that after he was seated next to Weinstein, he approached him and asked to take a photo.

Steve told TMZ he had had "quite a bit to drink" when he approached Weinstein for the second time and instructed his friend to record the incident.

One of the men, identified only as Steve, walked up to Weinstein and told him he was a big fan of his films.

Harvey Weinstein was reportedly having dinner with his sober coach on Tuesday night when he was punched by some random drunk guy named Steve!

The video, acquired and discharged by TMZ, indicates Weinstein requesting that the companion not film him, while the calm mentor tries to hinder the camera. The manager claims that the two shook hands and Steve went to his table. Weinstein does appear to stumble, in what seems more like confusion rather than the sheer force of the impact.

Weinstein, 65, has been spotted in the Valley over the past few months after dozens of allegations surfaced in late 2017 that for decades he had sexually harassed and blacklisted women who rejected his advances. Weinstein reacts in surprise and momentarily starts to lose his footing, and the young man then begins unleashing a string of profanities, ordering Weinstein to leave.

Weinstein, 65, said he would not press charges over the incident, United States sources reported.

Weinstein is now under investigation by New York, Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, and London authorities.

It was a rare sighting of the perv after he was accused of sexual harassment by multiple women over nearly three decades in October.

Weinstein is reportedly in rehab at a nearby facility.
