Man Sues CNN’s Don Lemon for Alleged Assault at Sag Harbor Bar


A man is suing Don Lemon, claiming the CNN host attacked him at a Hamptons bar last summer. The suit, obtained by Mediaite, was filed Sunday and seeks unspecified damages for “emotional pain and suffering.”

“The plaintiff in this lawsuit has previously displayed a pattern of contempt for CNN on his social media accounts,” a CNN spokesperson told Mediaite in a statement. “This claim follows his unsuccessful threats and demands for an exorbitant amount of money from Don Lemon. Don categorically denies these claims and this matter does not merit any further comment at this time.”

Dustin Hice claims that Lemon attacked him at Sag Harbor dive bar Murf’s in July 2018. Hice, who was working as a bartender at another Hamptons watering hole at the time, said he approached Lemon at the bar one night after recognizing him. Hice “tried to get Mr. Lemon’s attention and offered to buy Mr. Lemon a drink,” the suit claims. The CNN host declined, stating he was “just trying to have a good time.”

Later in the night, the suit says, Lemon approached Hice.

“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, removed his hand and shoved his index and middle fingers in Plaintiff’s moustache and under Plaintiff’s nose,” the suit says.

Hice said Lemon repeatedly shoved his finders in his face and asked, “Do you like pussy or dick?” Hice claims he left the bar “shocked and humiliated.”

  1. Why didn’t Hicks just knock Lemon out with a blow to the face?
    Oh, I forgot, it’s a homo joint. Hicks should not have offered Lemon a drink, he should have offered to push his stool in.
    Hicks, Hice, WTF!

  2. I had to re-read that, the second time it was SAG Harbor. S and F don’t even look alike, time for an eye exam.

  3. Hice said Lemon repeatedly shoved his fingers in his face…s.o.b. apparently enjoyed it to let it happen “repeatedly”, so why is he suing?

  4. If it’s true and Hice has the witnesses (or better yet video) then Lemon Cake should be forking over a lot of cash in a no talk settlement. The real moment will be if the Honchos that actually run CNN see this as a chance to dump him and replace him with a person that can get better ratings, like a can of tuna.

  5. Don Lemon just wanted to show the gentleman how mannerly and well behaved liberals act on a normal day but shake their finger in the mean white supremacist faces (every white person alive according to CNN) and tell them how immoral and ill principled they are. Thanks CNN, you replaced churches with your righteous preaching while your preacher shoves his hand into men’s shorts. My heroes.

  6. Don Lemon attacks with his whanger. Sometimes he lands an uppercut to the mouth, other times he misses and lands one to the chin.

    He also hits many low blows.

  7. they call him Don Lemon,,, actually His last name is Smith,, they just call him a Lemon around the office.
