Detroit TV reporter and former New York Times staffer Charlie LeDuff is accused of fighting and urinating in the street after a St. Patrick’s Day bash on Sunday.
“I don’t remember taking a leak,” he tells a TV reporter. “It’s no reason to get your head stomped.”
LeDuff says an offer to have a drink turned into a fist fight.
“I tried to get guys off me and my brother. There are no hard feelings on my end.”
A police report says a security guard “tried to separate LeDuff from a fight but instead ended up being bitten on the index finger, breaking the skin. The guard declined medical attention.”
LeDuff’s station, WJBK-TV, did a very brief report on the incident.
He appeared on “Real Time with Bill Maher” last Friday to talk about his new book, “Detroit: An American Autopsy.”
