TMZ: Harvey Weinstein attacked at Paradise Valley 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.

Weinstein was at Elements restaurant at the Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort in Scottsdale, eating dinner with his sober coach when 2 men sat at a table next to them.

TMZ said the dark-haired man, who gave his name only as Steve, had earlier approached the dining Weinstein for a photo with him. Both sat back down, and Steve admitted to TMZ that he then had "quite a bit to drink" and made a decision to have his friend film him as he approached Weinstein again.

Steve told TMZ he had "quite a bit to drink", before slapping Weinstein. The manager of the restaurant says Weinstein was not belligerent - she says to the contrary he was "very sweet about it" and said, "I'd rather not take a picture right now".

According to Raw Story, Steve was drunk.

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. Steve's companion filmed the incident, which you can watch below, which shows Steve delivering two backhanded slaps to the face while berating Weinstein.

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

Original reports stated that Weinstein had been punched in the face.

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

Over the past few months, over 60 women have come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against Harvey Weinstein.
