CNN anchor Don Lemon is sued by a Hamptons bartender over alleged assault after 'grabbing his genitals, then shoving his fingers the man's face and asking "do you like p***y or d**k" while out partying'

    Don Lemon is being sued by Florida man Dustin Hice who claims he was assaulted by the CNN anchor at a Hamptons bar
    Hice claims that he was out with co-workers at Murf’s Backstreet Tavern in Sag Harbor on or around July 15, 2018 when Lemon approached him
    'Mr. Lemon, who was wearing a pair of shorts, sandals, and a t-shirt, put his hand down the front of his own shorts, and vigorously rubbed his genitalia,' says suit
    Lemon allegedly 'removed his hand and shoved his index and middle fingers into Plaintiff’s mustache under Plaintiff’s nose'
    Lemon 'categorically denies these claims', a rep for CNN said
    The network rep added: 'The plaintiff in this lawsuit has previously displayed a pattern of contempt for CNN on his social media accounts'
    'This claim follows his unsuccessful threats and demands for an exorbitant amount of money from Don Lemon,' they added in a statement

Don Lemon is being sued by a Florida man who claims that the CNN anchor sexually harassed and assaulted him while out at a Hamptons hotspot.

Dustin Hice, 38, claims that he was with co-workers at Murf’s Backstreet Tavern in Sag Harbor on or around July 15, 2018, when Lemon allegedly assaulted him, detailing the incident in a complaint that was filed over the weekend in New York Supreme Court for Suffolk County court and obtained by DailyMail.com. Lemon denies the assault.

Upon recognizing Lemon, Hice made what he describes as a 'cordial gesture' and 'tried to get Mr. Lemon’s attention and offered to buy Mr. Lemon a drink'.

Lemon, 53, responded to Hice's offer by declining the drink and telling the young man he was 'just trying to have a good time', according to the court filing.

Things then allegedly took a bizarre and violent turn later that evening according to Hice, who is asking for damages to be determined at trial.
