From Fox News:

The son of a member of Congress was arrested Wednesday following an altercation at a Florida restaurant, police said.

Carlos J. Gimenez, the son of U.S. Rep. Carlos Gimenez, was taken into custody after police said he slapped Miami Commissioner Alex Diaz de la Portilla at Morton’s Steakhouse located in Coral Gables, the Miami Herald reported.

The Miami commissioner released a statement after the alleged incident where he described Gimenez, a lawyer and lobbyist, as “cowardly,” suggesting he was intoxicated and called the alleged slap was “more [of a] flick of the wrist.”

“It was more flick of his wrist from behind me when I was having lunch as he cowardly approached me from behind and ran away. This guy is not known as a very courageous guy. Actually, he’s quite a coward and appeared to be under the influence,” he said.
