Video shows man slap Harvey Weinstein at Arizona restaurant

Video shows man slap Harvey Weinstein at Arizona restaurant

Disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein has surfaced in Arizona, US, looking dishevelled and being harassed by diners at a restaurant.

TMZ posted a video of the altercation at Elements at the Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain showing a man slap Weinstein twice while calling him a "piece of s--". The manager said Weinstein was "sweet" about saying no, and that Steve appeared to be drunk when he approached Weinstein again later that evening.

The man reportedly told TMZ that Weinstein declined to take the picture and was being belligerent.

TMZ obtained footage of the encounter, which shows the Steve backhanding Weinstein twice across the face.

As both parties got up to leave around 9 p.m., Steve, who confessed he had had "quite a bit to drink", asked his friend to shoot a video of the ensuing confrontation.

Initial reports stated that Steve tried to "punch" Weinstein, but neither of the blows landed.

There is video of the incident and Weinstein did indeed catch a couple of backhanded slaps to his grill.

Steve, who was sitting at a table with another man, first asked the tycoon to pose for a photo with him but the request was declined.

Weinstein's representative Sallie Hofmeister told The Arizona Republic in an email that TMZ's report was accurate and had no further comment. Weinstein has denied all the claims. The deal was reportedly finalized late past year, and they are expected to file court documents this week.

Weinstein has been accused of sexual harassment and assault more than 82 women, including Hollywood actresses Rose McGowan, Asia Argento, Ashley Judd, Salma Hayek and more.

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