Wilmer's Bodyguard Whips Clubgoer's Ass

1/5/2007 12:16 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

WARNING: STRONG LANGUAGE

Fists flew and blood spilled as a man who recently worked as Wilmer Valderrama's bodyguard unleashed a ferocious attack on the streets of Hollywood last night.

It doesn't appear that he was working for Wilmer last night, as the star wasn't anywhere near Area nightclub in West Hollywood, but the two men have a tight history together.

TMZ cameras rolled as the bodyguard, who goes by the name Tah Dow, and a random clubgoer took a heated argument into the street, when the clubgoer raised his fists and yelled, "Hit me first!" As the clubgoer got within Dow's reach, the burly bodyguard grabbed him and slammed him to the ground while screaming, "There are no cops here to save you right now!" He continued to pummel the man; repeatedly slamming him to the ground, headbutting, slapping and even ramming his head into a wall.

After the pulverizing stopped, Tah Dow screamed racial taunts at the man as L.A. County Sheriff's Deputies, who arrived after the beating, stood there and listened. One deputy even appeared to smile as the screaming continued.

UPDATE: TMZ spoke with a rep from Valderrama's camp who says, "Wilmer is in Germany. He has not yet seen the tape."

Wow that skinny boy is a dumbass. Looks like he may have deserved it! Though I don't condone violence, some people just don't know when to walk away.

What a big ass bully! This pretty much sums up what is so wrong with Hollywood. Somebody always looking for air time on someone's camera...and the cops just watching the show and laughing.....sick

Some dude    

Another classic example.

This dude yelling "you stupid white boy" and one broad off to the side saying, "keep the white thing out of it"

There was a whole mob of cops that I saw doing nothing.
What if the roles had been reversed?

What if the body guard had been white, and the dude was black, and afterward he was yelling "you stupid black boy"?

I hope every cop identified in that video gets fired.
There job is to serve and to protect. Cops don’t get the luxury of choosing who deserves protection.

When two people fight each other it’s called Mutual Combat, which means basically either they both press charges and both get arrested or neither does and they go their merry ways.
The cops there had an obligation to stop the fight, and I cannot wait to hear about how this guy’s suit against the LA County Sheriffs Dept goes, especially if he was injured in any way.

Racial slur's are thrown around by people everywhere of any color,
so if your going to go after one, be prepared to go after ALL OF THEM!!!
That guy is very lucky he could have been really hurt.
You don't go up to someone that big & say "Hit Me!"

Tah Dow (What a name) can yell all the racial slurs HE wants because he is not white. Only white people get thrown to the media hounds of hell for making a racial slur. And the cops are probably black or just plain chicken. Or maybe being LA they are just paid off.

haha I'm so confused about how I feel about this guy. He clearly could have kicked that guys ass but didn't, rather used moves to restrain him, and yes, he probably did it in such a way that he can't be charged, because he didn't use any means of excessive force, especially after the guy hit him with his shoe. He was also smart enough to clearly say 'You're going to assault me with your shoe?'. This guy clearly knows what he's doing and what to say. It's unfortunate he felt necessary to constantly refer to the man as a white boy. As a white female, if I were in an altercation with someone I were never refer to them as black girl, chinese girl, or any race reference. It just goes to show how much work society still has to do until race is not a reference that automatically comes to someones mind.

TMZ totally over rated this "fight." Tah Dow did nothing to that dumb drunk prick. He was drunk off his rocker and picked a fight with a big boy. Tah Dow told him to knock it off because he wasn't going to hit him, but drunk boy kept on. His "head butt' was just trying to get dumb ass to listen to him. That is all the whole "fight' was. As far as the police go, they didn't do anything because there was nothing to handle. By the time they came, it was just an argument on the sidewalk. So TMZ needs to change their story to what really did happen, and stop making it like Tah Dow went crazy on an innocent person.
