The Mayor of Louisville, Kentucky was assaulted by a man on Saturday evening while attending a Juneteenth celebration at Fourth Street Live.

Video of the assault, obtained exclusively by WAVE News Troubleshooters, showed the suspect, a black male, approaching Democratic Mayor Greg Fischer and sucker punching him in either the upper chest or throat. The force of the punch knocked Fischer to the ground.

Jessica Wethington, a spokeswoman for Fischer, said the mayor “is doing fine” and was evaluated by EMS after the incident.

Wethington made the comments after the video revealed that there was minimal security surrounding Mayor Fischer during the time of the attack.
