“One minute, we were talking in a friendly manner, and the next, he just lashed out at me. We were having a drink together, and everything seemed fine when suddenly he changed. I was a few inches from him when he punched me full in the face with his right hand,” Facchinetti said.
“I was stunned. There was a lot of blood, and my wife became hysterical and screaming. One of the bodyguards tried to calm her down, and two people immediately jumped on McGregor and dragged him away. I could not believe that he had hit me. I must admit I was worried about what he would do next, but he was quickly taken away. Everyone was very shocked and upset. No one could not believe what he had done. It was just so unfair and uncalled for.”
