Comedian Dan Nainan assaulted Daily Beast reporter Josh Rogin Wednesday night in Washington, D.C., police say.
Rogin had tweeted criticism of Nainan’s comedy act before the purported incident, which the report classifies as simple assault. D.C. police spokesperson Araz Alali confirmed in a phone call that Nainan was arrested last night at the club’s address.
On the listed date and time, V-1 reports he was punched in the face by O-1 with a closed fist and then pushed. V-1 further reports that O-1 walked away and returned to strike V-1 in the face with a closed fist. W-1 also reports that he observed O-1 punch V-1 in the face with a closed fist.
Here’s the report. I blacked out Rogin’s address and phone number.
