The video shows they exchanged heated words and got into a bit of a scuffle before parting ways.
Barnes filed for a temporary restraining order two days after the incident that alleges Patterson Jr. started the incident, according to TMZ.
In the court documents, Barnes says Patterson Jr. “hunted me down and aggressively confronted me” and said Patterson Jr. yelled profanities and threats at him, called him names, and incited the crowd around them “into a frenzy by yelling out my full name repeatedly.”
“I did not want the altercation to physically escalate further, and out of frustration with him seeking me out and his unrelenting repeated harassment I spit in his direction in disgust,” Barnes continued.
This isn’t the first time the two have had a run in, as Barnes claims the man has been terrorizing him for months because he is jealous of Barnes’ relationship with his ex-wife and in 2022, Patterson Jr, threatened to shoot him with his gun.
Barnes is requesting the court to restrict the man from coming within 100 yards of him.
