Weinstein declined to press charges and left the restaurant quietly.

Steve, who tells TMZ he had been drinking, told the movie boss he was "a piece of s**t for what you did to these women", and then threw a punch at him. Steve says he punched Weinstein twice, causing him to stumble and nearly fall down. The light slaps were accompanied by a torrent of profanity by an allegedly tipsy fellow diner after Weinstein had apparently declined to pose for a photo.

Police are aware of the video footage, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Weinstein has kept a low profile since he took over media headlines following the revelation of his decades-long cases of sexual assault on unwanting women.

At around 9 PM, Weinstein and his sober coach got up to leave at the same time Steve and his dinner companion were leaving.

Weinstein went to Scottsdale in October and took part in a therapy program there shortly after sexual misconduct allegations against him began to emerge.

TMZ reports that the man who's seen slapping Weinstein in the video asked for a photo with a producer earlier in the night. The resort itself discharged an announcement, "Our visitors' protection is central at Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain Resort and Spa". But as Weinstein asked the man not to film him and his coach tried to block the camera, Steve slapped the producer in the face. "Therefore, we are unable to provide a comment". The manager denies this as well, claiming the punches didn't land.

He has since been dropped by The Weinstein Company (TWC), which he co-founded with his brother, Bob Weinstein.
