LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:
Michael Savage, the 74-year-old host of “Savage Nation,” which is nationally syndicated, was dining solo at Servino Ristorante in Tiburon, with his toy poodle, Teddy, when another patron allegedly began taunting him by saying, ‘weener, weener.” The mocking gesture playing off his given name Michael Alan Weiner, explained the Daily Mail.
According to Savage and his attorney Daniel Horowitz, as Savage began for the door of the restaurant, the verbal abuse turned physical when the heckler knocked the radio personality to the ground.
When a samaritan tried to break up the kerfuffle, he was punched in the face, Horowitz told the Mercury News.
The Daily Mail has confirmed with Tiburon Police Department that the disturbance did occur, and that when officials arrived on scene, both Savage and his attacker had placed each other under citizens arrest.
Apparently both men accused each other of starting the confrontation, and after hearing both sides, police let both men go, reports the Daily Mail.
Horowitz, Savage’s high-powered lawyer, said the popular right-wing radio presenter called him from the restaurant, sounding furious, said the Daily Mail.
‘He said, “This guy can’t get away with that,”‘ the lawyer told the paper.
Ultimately, the Daily Mail says, the District Attorney will receive the report and determine if further legal action is necessary.
