Harvey Weinstein Attacked at Restaurant in Scottsdale

Harvey Weinstein Punched By Stranger For What He 'Did To These Women'

Disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein got slapped in the face at an Arizona restaurant on new Tuesday.

The friend of the man who attempted to hit him asked Weinstein if he wanted to call the police, but Harvey said "no" and then left.

Later in the evening, when Weinstein was preparing to leave the restaurant, one of the men - named Steve - confronted him, while the other man filmed.

According to the gossip site, the movie mogul was eating dinner at the Elements restaurant at the Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort in Scottsdale, Ariz., with his "sober coach" when he was approached by two men sitting next to him.

The man is then observed hollering at Weinstein, "You're such a bit of s - for what you did to these ladies".

What the Sessions Memo Means for Hemp, Medical Marijuana and You
It did not waste enormous taxpayer dollars and resources by having the federal government go after non-violent marijuana users not involved in gangs or cartels.

There is video of the incident and Weinstein did indeed catch a couple of backhanded slaps to his grill. Steve claimed Weinstein was belligerent, but TMZ audio suggests that's not the case. Around 9 pm, Steve and his male friend were leaving the restaurant, and he wandered over again to his table drunk after having too many drinks.

Weinstein checked into a treatment facility in Arizona after dozens of women came forward in October with allegations of sexual harassment and assault. The deal was reportedly finalized late past year, and they are expected to file court documents this week. Among the accusers were actresses Ashley Judd, Salma Hayek, Lupita Nyong'o and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Initial reports stated that Steve tried to "punch" Weinstein, but neither of the blows landed.

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