Jonathan Cheban

Bodyguard Punches Knife-Wielding Guy ...

Over Sushi [VIDEO]

5/21/2014 10:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Video

0521-jon-ceban-launch-3TMZ has obtained video of reality star Jonathan Cheban's bodyguard socking an aggressive stranger in the face. 

Cheban ... a fixture on "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" ... was grabbing a late dinner with his bodyguard and 3 friends at Sushi Couture in Brooklyn Sunday night when a random stranger started heckling Jonathan. 

We're told Jonathan Instagrammed he was at the restaurant ... then a preppy-looking dude with a knife hanging off his belt approached his table, but was blocked by bodyguard "Sal the Contractor." The guy even followed Jonathan to the bathroom.

Sources in the restaurant tell us the instigator waited until the end of the night, to lunge at Jonathan as his entourage got up to leave. That's when Sal slammed a punch into the dude's face, as our video shows.

We're told the guy backed down and left after the punch. Smart.

How more staged could this be. He's a nobody with a new restaurant to promote. Head to Paris you Queen.

It must be a slow news day if TMZ is posting stories about a Kardashian barnacle like this guy.

if anything the so called instigator has a case against the black guy..dude was holding his arms then he just ups and punches him and he in no way looked threatening...seems like in hollywood if you are violent just call yourself a body guard and you have free reign to run around assaulting people for no reason

This guy is nothing more than a Kardashian hanger-on. He certainly isn't big and famous enough to warrant his own bodyguard. He's the one who should BE the bodyguard. What a D-bag.

Is this the guy that looks like the power company guy on Family Guy and Peter tells him I must paint you? The one with his eyes real close together?
