The disgraced Hollywood producer had a run-in with an angry man while dining out in Scottsdale, Arizona, on Tuesday.

Weinstein was at Elements restaurant at the Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort in Scottsdale, eating dinner with his sober coach when 2 men sat at a table next to them.

Steve had gone up to Weinstein, 65, earlier in the evening and asked him to take a photo, but Weinstein declined, a restaurant manager told TMZ.

A civic-minded citizen walked up to Weinstein, and blasted him, saying: You're such a piece of shi* for what you did to these women.

Steve, who admits he had "quite a bit to drink", told U.S. website TMZ the former Miramax boss rudely rejected the photo request. Steve says Weinstein became belligerent and told him to buzz off.

The man may have been drunk, but his actions can only be described as appropriate considering the horrific abuse women have suffered thanks to Weinstein.

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.

While the manager claimed that neither attempted backhand hit Weinstein, in the video, two clear slaps can be heard.

Original reports stated that Weinstein had been punched in the face.

In October, TMZ also reported that Weinstein arrived in Arizona for rehab.

I'm, like, "Do you understand what I have been through for 20 years?"' Weinstein - accused by dozens of women of sexual misconduct including harassment, assault and rape - is being investigated by police in LA, New York and London.

Lt. Michael Cole, the department spokesperson told THR, Paradise Valley police know about the assault, but a complaint has not been filed yet.

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