Jamie Foxx Involved In Violent Fight At Catch Restaurant? [VIDEO]By: Monya Fleming
Jamie Foxx was reportedly caught up in a brawl at a Los Angeles restaurant called Catch on Saturday night. The 49-year-old actor was enjoying dinner with a group of friends when another patron approached their table and things got ugly.
Witnesses reveal the incident occurred on Saturday after the man walked over to where Foxx and his friends were seated and complained that they were being too loud. Foxx was sitting at a table with actor Tyrin Turner, his barber Conrad Hilton and some other friends on the patio of the eatery.
There were a few words exchanged and the patron reportedly stated, "You don't want to mess with me. I'm from New York."
An eyewitness said that statement didn't go over well and that a comedian having dinner with Jamie shouted back, "F**k you I'm from Oakland."
The unidentified man then reportedly lunged at the actor and had him pinned down against a table for a short time, before Foxx got free and put him in a chokehold and down to the ground.
TMZ has obtained video of the brawl, however it's difficult to make out exactly what is going on in the grainy clip. You can make out a group of men that are pushing and grabbing one another, while others try to put a stop to the brawl.
An eyewitness said that Jamie did not respond to the man but the star's entourage stepped in when the other patron got up in Jamie's face. Several other celebrities, including Cuba Gooding Jr., Michael Bay and Nicole Murphy, were reportedly present at the up-scale restaurant when the fight broke out.
Sources claim that the unidentified attacker and Foxx's party were all asked to leave the restaurant after the scuffle.
Foxx had been in Miami earlier in the week, reportedly ringing in the New Year with his rumored girlfriend, actress Katie Holmes.
