Alex Kompothecras, star of MTV's reality show Siesta Key
and alleged shark abuser
, was punched in the face outside a bar in Tampa.
As first reported by the Tampa Bay Times,
Kompothecras suffered a bloody lip after getting punched in the face by an unknown assailant outside of the Irish pub MacDinton's SoHo. The reality star reportedly got into an argument inside the bar, and was then removed by several "security guys," says the police report.
From the Times:
While talking to police, Kompothecras pointed to a man and told police he was the man who punched him. "Are you sure?" one police officer asked.
"He kinda has the same jaw line," Kompthecras said according to the police report. "But I didn't really see the guy." "I'm not 100% sure," he told the officers.
"I don't want to send the wrong guy, but I would bet it was him." Ultimately, Kompothecras withdrew his complaint.
Alex Kompothecras is the son of Dr. Gary Kompothecras, of the 1-800-Ask-Gary commercials. Earlier this year it was discovered through social media posts that Kompothecras is friends and fishing buddies with Michael Wenzel, of the extremely viral shark-dragging video
Other social media posts, which are now deleted, show Kompothecras allegedly shooting a shark with a handgun, giving a dog beer through a funnel, and posting racially insensitive remarks about black people.
