A tipsy restaurant visitor slapped accused rapist and movie producer Harvey Weinstein at a Paradise Valley restaurant on Tuesday, calling him a "piece of shit". Steve, who said he had "quite a bit to drink", asked his friend to film his interaction with Weinstein.

The video shows Weinstein's sobriety coach quickly usher his client past him and then hold up his hands to prevent the men from filming any more of the scene.

Weinstein had refused to take a photo with the diner earlier in the evening while eating at the Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort with his sober coach, TMZ reports.

The producer wasn't harmed and reportedly declined to call police, according to local ABC affiliate KNXV-TV.

According to TMZ, the man, named Steve, approached Weinstein asking for a photo.

Well for our benefit, TMZ has now released video of the attack, and it looks like the truth lies somewhere in the middle.

There was "high activity" of the flu - the highest prevalence ranking - in almost half of the U.S. as reported last week. Bill Christian, a spokesman for the Department of Health, says their department learned of the woman's death Monday.

Video of the incident shows Weinstein's dinner companion try to stop footage from being shot while the man yells expletives, People magazine noted.

Weinstein has been coming to Arizona since a New York Times story exposed him as a serial sexual predator.

Elements is an upscale restaurant at the Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona. "Therefore, we are unable to provide a comment".

Weinstein has denied any claim of non-consensual sex.

The 65-year-old previous leader of The Weinstein Company has been blamed by handfuls for ladies of sexual unfortunate behavior, including assault, since October. It's now three months later and he's still there, with no news as to when, or if, he plans on returning to Los Angeles, or what other treatments he's currently receiving.
