Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson Fights Man Who Hit Him With Pie At Charity Dinner
Kevin Johnson was once one of best point guards in the NBA. Today, he’s the mayor of Sacramento and NOT to be f***ed with…
A man hit Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson in the face with a pie at a charity dinner on Wednesday night, and an official said the former NBA star went on the defensive.
The mayor had given a speech at the Seeds of HOPE dinner at Sacramento Charter High School before the man came up, pulled the pie from a bag and shoved it into Johnson’s face, according to the mayor’s chief of staff, Crystal Strait.
She said the mayor defended himself against the man, but she would not give details.
“The mayor was assaulted. I was standing right there, and I’m still pretty shaken up,” Strait said, speaking some three hours after the incident occurred.
This what it looks like when Kevin Johnson “defends himself”. Looks a lot like an a$$-whoopin’, right?
Police agreed. They arrested 32-year-old Sean Thompson on suspicion of assaulting a public official, which is a felony, the Sacramento Police Department said in a statement.
Thompson was treated for a minor injury before he was taken to be booked into jail. It wasn’t clear if he had retained an attorney.
Kevin Johnson got hands, huh? Guess if you’re the mayor you can’t be no b!t¢#.
