'Project Runway' Dude

Sues Over Beer Bottle Fight

7/19/2010 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rami Kashou was beaten by Christian Siriano in the finals of season four of "Project Runway" -- but it's the alleged beating he received at the hands of a stranger that has him filing a mega-lawsuit.

Kashou claims in the suit -- filed Friday in L.A. County Superior Court -- he was minding his business at the popular West Hollywood restaurant/bar The Abbey, when a table of fans recognized him. Kashou says one of the men at the table, Arturo Trejo-Perez, scoffed, "Who the f**k are you?" Kashou says he said humbly, "I'm nobody, I'm just the waiter," and then walked away.

But it didn't end there.  Kashou says a few minutes later, he was at the bar when Perez came up to him, beer bottle in hand, and asked, "Did you even f**king win?" ... then poured beer over Kashou's head while screaming, "You are nothing but a lowlife has-been reality show loser."  Then, according to Kashou, Trejo-Perez smashed him in the face with the bottle.  

According to the suit, Trejo-Perez was eventually arrested, but only after repeatedly punching Kashou.

Kashou is suing Trejo-Perez and the bar owners for more than $25,000.

What??????? A person with a Hispanic last name is involved in an unprovoked attack with a weapon? That does not seem typical of Hispanics at all. Weird!

Its ignorant racist douchbag comments like the ones you guys are all making that got Rami (Nobody) kashless beat up & not by a bottle but by fist. He called the guy a drunk spick then walked away smiling as Perez poured his beer over Rami's egg head & put it down to walk out of the bar as Rami kowardly tackled him from behind & tore the guys shirt off & clawed his back like a girl as Perez started punching him to get Ram I off of him. I was there by the bar & heard & saw everything & wrote my testimony to the judge which got Perez off & Rami Douchbag's charges dismissed. Learn ur facts idiots. Cheers & get a life
