Harvey Weinstein was attacked Tuesday night at a restaurant... TMZ has learned

The shamed producer has been hiding out in Arizona since completing rehab for sex addiction, and had dinner with his sobriety coach at Scottsdale's Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort on Tuesday night. As he was eating dinner with his sober coach, two men sat at a table next to them. Although the restaurant manager says Steve's hands never landed on Weinstein's face, you clearly see and hear Steve make contact twice, as he calls Weinstein "a piece of s***".

TMZ spoke with a man identified only as "Steve" who was also a patron at the restaurant, who says that he initially approached Weinstein to compliment his work and a request a photo.

The restaurant manager told TMZ that neither punch connected, and that "the guy was drunk and out of control".

The former movie mogul's career came to a crashing end a year ago after the New York Times reported multiple allegations of sexual harassment against him that spanned decades.


Though the person who filmed the incident reportedly asked Harvey if he wanted to call the police, the former Hollywood heavyweight declined, and everyone left the restaurant.

His psychologist told TMZ that Weinstein was focused on "dealing with his anger, his attitude toward others, boundary work and the beginnings of work on empathy" during their sessions together and that Weinstein was "invested in the program".

Weinstein is under investigation by authorities in New York, Los Angeles, Beverly Hills and London.
