Ben Shapiro, an editor at the conservative news and opinion site Breitbart.com, says that former news chopper pilot Bob Tur, who now is a woman and goes by the name Zoey assaulted him, during an appearance on the Dr. Drew Show.
The show was discussing Caitlyn Jenner receiving the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPYs.
When the discussion returned to Shapiro, he said, “I’ll call him Caitlyn Jenner. Forget about the disrespect, facts don’t care about your feelings. It turns out that every chromosome, every cell in Caitlyn Jenner’s body is male, except for some of his sperm cells.”
Shapiro then turned to Tur and asked, “What are your genetics, sir?”
Tur who was sitting next to Shapiro, then put her hand around his neck and said, “You cut that out now, or you’ll be going home an ambulance.” She later told Shapiro that he was “consumed with hatred” and called him “a little man, a little boy.”
Sahpiro said that was an assault and filed a police report. “Oh please,” Tur tells Newsweek. “Did you see an assault?” She sarcastically added, “Yeah, the LAPD is working in shifts. They have detectives on it day and night.”
Shapiro intends to pursue charges regarding alleged criminal threats.
"Tur told me as he left the studio that he would see me in the parking lot; the CNN producers took that seriously enough that they checked to see that he had left the premises, and had security escort me to the parking lot as well," Shapiro tells Newsweek. "He also tweeted that he would like to 'curb stomp' me. Other than that, police have told me not to comment on the situation because the investigation is now underway."
