Jamie Foxx was allegedly swept up in a fight at one of Los Angeles’ most star-studded eateries.
The 49-year-old actor was at Catch LA on Saturday night with a group of friends having dinner when they were allegedly approached by another patron and things turned violent. TMZ has obtained video of the incident which saw pandemonium ensue at the West Hollywood, California, establishment.
Witnesses told TMZ that a man approached Jamie’s table where he was sitting with fellow actor Tyrin Turner, his barber Conrad Hilton and other friends on the restaurant’s famed patio and asked them to be quiet. Words were exchanged and the unknown patron allegedly said, ‘You don’t want to mess with me. I’m from New York.’ The witness then told TMZ that a comedian having dinner with Jamie shouted back, ‘F*** you I’m from Oakland.’
The man then allegedly lunged at the actor and things turned physical, a witness told the website. While TMZ said the man grabbed the Oscar winner and Jamie put the man in a headlock, a source tells the DailyMail.com however, that Jamie did not make contact with the man.
Jamie later joked about the incident on Instagram.
