Movie mogul Harvey Weinstein was attacked at a Scottsdale, Arizona restaurant Tuesday night, according to TMZ. 

TMZ reportsthat the incident happened at the Elements restaurant at the Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort as Weinstein was having dinner with his "sober coach."  In October, TMZ also reported that Weinstein arrived in Arizona for rehab.

According to TMZ, a man approached Weinstein and asked to take a photo with him after expressing that he enjoyed his movies. 

The man reportedly told TMZ that Weinstein declined to take the picture and was being belligerent. 

As Weinstein and his coach were getting up to leave, TMZ says the man and his companion were also leaving and again approached Weinstein and made comments before allegedly punching Weinstein in the face. 

TMZ reports that a restaurant manager said neither attempted punch connected. 

The manager also reportedly claims that Weinstein was polite about originally declining to take a picture with the man. 

Weinstein reportedly declined to have the police called about the incident. 

Paradise Valley Police Department did not respond to a request comment about the alleged incident prior to publishing. 

Several celebrities have accused Weinstein of rape, abuse, and other forms of sexual misconduct.
