'ER' Doc Assaults a Guy in Jealous Rage?

The rumor mill is working overtime with a story involving Mekhi Phifer, his date, and a man Phifer allegedly smashed in the face with a beer bottle outside Orso restaurant.

ER doctor and 8 Mile star, Mekhi Phifer, and an attractive date had a perfectly civilized dinner at Arnie Morton's steakhouse in Burbank. As they were leaving, Mekhi's date went outside to smoke and Mekhi paused to speak to someone. When Mekhi arrived outside he actually saw a man SPEAKING TO his date! The enraged actor grabbed an empty beer bottle from a patio table and SMASHED the startled guy right in the face, flattening him! The bleeding victim was hustled off to the emergency room and Mekhi and his horrified date scrammed in a hurry. The next day the victim returned to the restaurant and he had stitches all over his face. He explained "I was just asking that woman for a cigarette."

I have no idea if this story is true, and it sounds a little farfetched to me. On the other hand, I have heard worse stories that turned out to be true. Time will tell.
