Religion News Service reports:
Eric Metaxas told a Christian magazine that a protester on a bike harassed him after he left the White House last week. He would not say whether or not he hit the protester though, despite a recent viral video in which a man resembling Metaxas punched a cycling demonstrator.
Instead, the radio host cast blame on the protester when asked about the incident. “For context, just so you know, the guy came at me with his bike and was very menacing for a long time,” Metaxas told World Magazine.
The demonstrator said that he was detained by the Secret Service but suggested that he was released after a bystander showed authorities video of the event. He said that he may pursue a civil case against Metaxas.
