The controversial talk radio host Thaddeus Matthews claimed he was attacked at a bar over the weekend.

Matthews said he told Jeffries 'No,' and Jeffries got angry and punched him. He knocked Matthews to the ground and started kicking him.

In his true radio show host style, Matthews took his copy of the police affidavit and posted it to his Facebook page.

Jeffries was arrested Monday. He has been charged with aggravated assault.
