Disgraced Producer Harvey Weinstein Gets Slap In The Face At Arizona Restaurant

Harvey Weinstein was attacked at the Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort in Scottsdale Arizona

Infamous movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, accused by numerous women of sexual misconduct, was "attacked" while leaving a Paradise Valley restaurant Tuesday night, TMZ reported Wednesday.

He then asked his friend to film him as he approached for a second time at the Elements restaurant, part of Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona.

"You're such a piece of s-t for what you did to these women" he said in the video. Steve tells TMZ he had "quite a bit to drink", told his friend to fire up his cell phone and shoot video of what was about to happen.

While the manager claimed that neither attempted backhand hit Weinstein, in the video, two clear slaps can be heard.

As Weinstein makes an attempt to leave, he notices that he's being filmed by someone else in the restaurant.

The former studio boss did not call police and then left the restaurant, TMZ reported.

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

Weinstein checked into a treatment facility in Arizona after dozens of women came forward in October with allegations of sexual harassment and assault. Among the accusers were actresses Ashley Judd, Salma Hayek, Lupita Nyong'o and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Weinstein has spent the last two months at the £27,000-a-month The Meadows rehabilitation facility in Arizona, where House of Cards actor Kevin Spacey, 58, is also being treated.

Weinstein was forced to step down as a board member at his production firm The Weinstein Company a year ago (17), after the publication of exposes in The New York Times and New Yorker magazine, detailing decades of alleged sexual misconduct and assault.
