Comedian Donnell Rawlings, aka “Ashy Larry”, is being accused of punching a fan at a hotel in SoHo.
Cops are saying that Rawlings punched Thurston Greer, a fan, outside the SoHo Grand Hotel on West Broadway near Grand St. at 2:30 am on Friday.
Chappelle declined to take the picture; Greer went outside of the hotel and began live streaming on his Facebook about not getting a picture with the comedian.
Thinking that Greer was still trying to get a photo, Rawlings, and a security guard angrily walked outside and tried to remove Greer’s phone from him.
During the encounter, Greer received a punch and several scratches which were treated at the scene. Greer identified Rawlings as the one who punched him, but charges have not been made.
Rawlings lawyer made a statement saying, ” Whatever the police wants us to do, we are happy to work with them.”
A source that is close with Rawlings said that Greer was very aggressive and even tried getting a picture with them in the bathroom. Rawlings took a swing at Greer but never made contact.
