(SAN FRANCISCO) — Don’t let his affable personality on TV fool you — Guy Fieri is a tough guy. TMZ has posted video of the chef scuffling with his hairdresser over the weekend.
In the clip, the hairdresser, Ariel Ramirez, is seen punching Fieri from the outside of an SUV in which Fieri is sitting. Fieri responds by kicking the hairdresser.
TMZ sources explain that the two had just arrived in San Francisco by plane after drinking on their flight. They hired a car service to take them home.
Fieri reportedly ejected Ramirez from the SUV, after which his manager took Ramirez home by cab.
This is how Fieri’s rep addressed the fight to TMZ: “A bunch of guys were messing around. Things got a little out of hand, but they’re all good now.”
In other Fieri news, the Marin Independent Journal reports a 19-year-old man was convicted Wednesday in the theft of Fieri’s 200-thousand-dollar Lamborghini. The vehicle was stolen from a San Francisco car dealership in 2011. Max Wade, who was also found guilty of attempted murder and of firing a gun into an occupied vehicle in an unrelated case, faces up to 30 years in prison.
