NBC4 Anchor Files Lawsuit Following Hotel Brawl

NBC4 anchor Robert Kovacik has filed a lawsuit against Roger Talavera and the Beverly Hills Hotel following a Christmas Eve brawl last year.

Kovacik was meeting up with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump for drinks at the Polo Lounge and Talavera, who was in a “severe degree of intoxication,” started verbally assaulting their party.

Before he knew it, it was lights out for Kovacik as Talavera reportedly decked him, causing “physical injuries, emotional injuries, humiliation, embarrassment and other damages.”

Kovacik wants unspecified damages, plus medical costs, interest and court costs from Talavera and the hotel.
