The East Bay Express reports:
Sources in attendance have told the Express that, during the meal, a protester ran at the mayor and threw a store-bought pie in his face.
A different witness said that the pie had whipped cream as a topping.
After this, the protester reportedly said something to Johnson. This prompted the mayor to allegedly tackle the protester and punch him in the face "repeatedly," more than half a dozen times, landing "five to 10" blows.
One witness described it as a "bloody pulp." Other witnesses say that the pie-thrower was hit multiple times in the face and will definitely need stitches, and that there was visible blood.
Ambulances and fire department arrived at the scene.
