Harvey Weinstein Punched in the Face in Arizona Restaurant


Harvey Weinstein Punched in the Face in Arizona Restaurant

The disgraced Hollywood producer was spending some time with his sober coach at an Arizona restaurant in the Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort grounds Tuesday when another patron identified only as "Steve" approached him along with a friend who had been filming the two.

The restaurant manager tells TMZ Weinstein, who is in the state seeking treatment following accusations of rape and sexual misconduct, politely declined the request and shook the fan's hand.

The maker wasn't hurt and purportedly declined to call police, as per nearby ABC subsidiary KNXV-TV.

Weinstein left for Scottsdale after he was accused by numerous women of sexual assault in on-the-record stories published by the New York Times and the New Yorker in early October.

Steve, who tells TMZ he had been drinking, told the movie boss he was "a piece of s**t for what you did to these women", and then threw a punch at him.

In the video, Weinstein can be seen stumbling after being slapped while the man with him attempts to blocked the camera.

There is no word on whether or not Weinstein filed a police report.

Weinstein has been living in Arizona at a rehab facility following accusations from almost 100 women that he sexually harassed/assaulted them.

Weinstein was also fired from his film studio hours after he reportedly emailed a plea to Hollywood CEOs and moguls to prevent the ousting.

Steve said to the website he "had quite a bit to drink" and asked his friend to record a video of Steve confronting Weinstein. Among the accusers were actresses Ashley Judd, Salma Hayek, Lupita Nyong'o and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Weinstein has vehemently denied all allegations of non-consensual sex.
