Dr. Rey -- I Thought Knife Guy Was JOKING

4/19/2011 9:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Rey says he didn't freak out when a man pulled a knife on him at a Hollywood club this weekend -- because at the time, he thought the dude was just joking around ... and never intended to stab him. 041911_dr_rey_still



TMZ met up with the unsliced reality star in L.A. yesterday -- where he explained, "If I had perceived this for real, then I would have fought him off ... but I thought it was a joke."

Rey says after the camera shut off Friday night -- the knife-wielder approached him again and asked to take a picture together ... and Rey obliged.

As for legal action -- Rey tells us he probably won't press charges because, "I'm not 100% convinced it wasn't a prank."

041911_rey_video_v2TMZ broke the story -- some d-bag with a blade pulled out his weapon right in front of Rey outside of Roxbury nightclub over a disagreement about Rey's wardrobe ... but the d-bag's friend ripped the guy away from Rey before the situation escalated.

I love Dr. Rey. He seems really sweet and sincere. That said, I can see why the clothes and the hair might inspire violence in some. His wife needs to empty his closet and confiscate his credit cards. Then cut off the emo bangs while he's sleeping.

This guy is the scariest thing I've ever seen, and I ain't talking about the dude with the knife. Even scarier is thinking about this freak having a license to use a knife on other people. I wish he would of cut his hair off!!!

Is he trying out for a new show or has a new book coming out?

Sounds like a set up to be on TMZ. The smell test isn't winning. He's married to a woman?

That knife was 18" away from Dr.Rey's neck which was exposed and vulnerable.In a trained fighters hand that knife blade is absolutely deadly and Dr.rey would have bled to death in minutes(sorry Maxie pad)if his vital arteries or veins were severed 1/4" under the skin.

With one short fast thrust pokey could have killed Dr. Rey in second.In my warrior class we learned in c.q.b (close quarter battle) to move quickly into the inner circle and by grabbing the hand and knife using the isreali fighting art of krav maga violently and suddenly manipulating the attackers wrist at the same time removing the weapon from the assailants grip and creating immediate sepearation/distance or continue Forward to within your enemies (inner circle) employing grappling and submission locks or accurate debilitating strikes to vital areas like the groin,neck,eyes,temples,ears,nose and chin...then call 911 to clean up the mess..

dude is a d-bag but he was right about the shirt. Rather than pull a knife someone needs to sit Rey down and tell him he looks like a fool. Also gotta wonder why a married guy is dressed like that out at a club. No different that a married woman dressing to get attention.

only d-bag is the doctor. only in los angeles, can a fool like him exist!

poseur didn't look so cool when dude pulled out the knife. all the machismo disappeared from the *** doctor when dude pulled out the knife assuring that he could, in fact, "back it up!" thinking the good doctor will never wear that shirt again. evidently, his wife doesn't love him--if she did, she'd never allow him to look like one of the village people in public.

Shouldn't Doctor Rey be home with his wife and kids resting up for surgery? WTF is he doing at a nightclub at his age? Grow up already!

The knife-wheeling idiot should be locked up and become 'Bubba's" b*tch..Granted, Dr. Rey, doesn't know if he is a boy or girl,but doesn't deserve this..unbelievable...

Not gonna press charges,huh? Maybe because he set the whole thing up himself.Is there not one person in LA not walking around with a camera crew,taping their every move?This guy's an idiot and I agree with all the other people wondering exactly where he got his medical degree.And also wondering who the people are that let this guy carve into their bodies.What a world.
