Michael Savage, the popular radio personality was assaulted by a man as he was leaving a Marin County restaurant.
According to Savage’s attorney, Daniel Horowitz, the man shouted something at Savage before knocking him to the ground. Another restaurant customer, who intervened in the fracas, was punched in the face.
Horowitz said Savage, who lives in Marin County, had finished up a quiet dinner alone at Servino Ristorante. He had a bag of leftover food in one hand and his constant companion, his toy poodle Teddy, in the other.
Outside the restaurant, the man, who stands around 6 feet 5 inches, came at Savage, “yelling insults,” Horowitz said.
After Savage told the man to “go away,” he started to turn. Horowitz said it appears that the man knocked Savage to the ground while also pushing his dog out of the way.
At that point, another customer from the restaurant intervened, and Savage’s alleged assailant punched him in the face, Horowitz said. Savage was somehow able to get back up and help the good Samaritan while also calling police.
