Reporter Robert Kovacik’s Assailant Ordered to Pay $19k Plastic Surgery Bill

The man accused of punching KNBC reporter Robert Kovacik (right) in a drunken altercation involving “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Lisa Vanderpump has entered a no contest plea in the misdemeanor battery case.

Roger Talavera, who was reportedly harassing Vanderpump at the swanky Beverly Hills Polo Lounge before punching her pal Kovacik in the face when he tried to make him stop, was sentenced to a 36-month probation term as well as 120 hours of community service, according to RadarOnline.

In addition to probation and community service, Talavera is required to pay $19,299.38 in restitution to Kovacik’s plastic surgeon.

Kovacik filed charges against Talavera on Christmas Eve, hours after he received two dozen stitches to repair a deep gash along his lip.

KNBC Reporter Robert Kovacik’s Assault Case Continues in Los Angeles

Lisa Vanderpump, of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” fame, appeared in court on Friday in the assault case of her friend, KNBC reporter Robert Kovacik (right).

Last December, Kovacik filed charges against a man who allegedly punched him in the face following an argument at Beverly Hills’ posh Polo Lounge.

According to Vanderpump, who was subpoenaed in the case, a drunken man began making rude remarks while she was dining with Kovacik a couple of days before Christmas.  When the veteran reporter tried to get the man to stop, he received a swift blow to the face.  The altercation left Kovacik with a split lip that required stitches.

RadarOnline reports that the case will resume on April 11th.
