Jamie Foxx Addresses Restaurant Altercation In L.A. (Video)
Jamie Foxx hopped on social media to address reports of an altercation over the weekend.
In case you missed it, the Sleepless star was allegedly attacked by a man at LA’s famous Catch restaurant on Saturday after an exchange of unpleasantries.
Here’s the scoop via TMZ:
Jamie and some friends were in the patio area at Catch restaurant when a guy came up and complained the group was too loud. One witness says the guy mouthed off, “You don’t want to mess with me. I’m from New York.”
A comedian who was at Jamie’s table fired back, “F**k you I’m from Oakland.”
Eyewitnesses say at that point the guy lunged at Jamie. The accounts vary, but one witness says he actually made contact with the actor, pulling him down onto a table. The witness goes on to say Jamie turned the guy around, put him in a choke hold and took him down.
The random guy and the group were kicked out of the restaurant.
Here’s video of the madness:
