WASHINGTON (AP) — A comedian who says he was offended by tweets a journalist sent criticizing performers during a charity event in Washington is charged with assaulting the journalist.
Police in Washington say Dan Nainan was charged with simple assault Wednesday night after an incident at the DC Improv club.
Officer Araz Alali said Thursday that a man said Nainan punched him in the face twice after Nainan's performance at a benefit for the Pension Rights Center and the Foundation for the Education and the Rebirth of Haiti.
The police report identifies the victim as Josh Rogin, who is senior correspondent for Newsweek's The Daily Beast. The report also says a witness saw a punch.
Nainan tells The Associated Press that he did not punch Rogin but did push him twice.
