Jamie was at Catch, a restaurant in Hollywood popular with celebrities, with a group of friends enjoying the night and having dinner. That’s when a guy, seemingly a random guy, walked up to the group, and began yelling at them. He told them to quiet down (apparently they were being loud), and somehow the conversation turned into an argument. The man then said “you don’t want to mess with me, I’m from New York!” That’s when a comedian friend of Jamie who was at the table in the group shouted back “f— you, I’m from Oakland!”
That’s the moment at which the random guy went in to fight Jamie. After the man apparently “made contact,” pulling Jamie down, Jamie immediately got up, put the man in a choke and “took him down.” Apparently the stories vary, but that’s what TMZ is reporting. All parties involved, yes, Jamie too, were thrown out of the restaurant.
Video of the incident. It’s loud, a lot of room noise and background shouting/talking.
Jamie then took to Instagram after the fight, giving his side and some profanity-filled details. Again, probably not work safe language in the video.
