However, investigators nevertheless went forward with a “confrontation call,” having Koba phone Johnson on a secretly tapped line to try to get him to talk about their dealings. The police report contains a transcript of that conversation. In it, Johnson comes off as guarded, but it nonetheless speaks for itself:
Koba: “Well, I was naked and you were naked, and it wasn’t a hug.”
Johnson: “Well, I felt that it was, you know, a hug, and you know, I didn’t, to be honest, remember if we were both naked at that time. That is the night at the guesthouse?”
Koba: “Yeah. ... Why would I be upset if it was just a hug?”
Johnson: “Well, I said the hug was more intimate than it should have been. But I don’t believe I touched your private parts in those areas. And you did feel bad the next day and that’s why we talked about it.”
Koba: “Well, if it was just a hug, why were either one of us naked?”
Johnson: “Again, I didn’t recall us a hundred percent naked.”
Koba was 15, Johnson was 29. Read it yourself.at deadspin. Their is plenty more.
Another thug in public office.
Nice shiner . I hope it was worth it.
Hmm..seems like more than a pie in the face should have happened a long time ago. http://deadspin.com/im-a-grown-up-now-the-teen-who-accused-kevin-johnson-1732538782
The attacker needs a haircut ... badly. He looks like the typical counterculture troublemaker who's been dogging us since the 1960s.
Glad the Mayor 'splained things to him.
Democrat or Republican...throwing pies at mayors should not be tolerated. I wish more mayors would or could defend themselves. Good for him.
"Because the only pie KJ likes in his face is underage pie" - famous quote
LMBO, bet he wasn't expecting that!
So he got a pie in the face which is not a violent act and he went violently after the guy. The mayor needs to be gone.
Check back and see when the first lady jumped in and saved Johnson's butt for stealing from the city funds

Why didn't this thug of a mayor just finish up and kill the guy? Apparently being mayor lets you commit a felony assault in front of hundreds of witnesses and he gets applause instead of handcuffs? I guess you have to be liberal and black to understand this one.
Good for the mayor. These protesters need to be taught a lesson, that you can't assault someone without repercussions.
Anyone from the occupy movement are nothing but human garbage.
Would like to see the police do this to these thugs who are throwing things at them. If it's okay for the mayor(which I think it is) it should be okay for the police.
I'm seen many comments that read "If this had been a white Mayor, and black pie thrower the media would be all over it, or he would lose his job" blah blah blah. If this had been what you morons claim then all of you would be calling the pie throwing an assault, the pie thrower a "thug, animal" or some other name that you like to throw around, and giving a "Atta boy" to the Mayor for defending himself. So cut the nonsense
Look at all of these racists.
If he were "Black" this. If he were "White" that.
Umm.. no. Some guy threw a pie. (assault) The other guy, overreacted (also, assault) That's it.
Stop with the Black vs. White nonsense as a springboard for your Anti-Black rants. Both of them are a p.o.s. IMHO. And race has nothing to do with that.
If a student at that high school were to retaliate, he too would be in trouble.
Good job KJ!!!
It should have been "a pie for a pie". The mayor's reaction was way out of proportion to the assault. Arrest the assailant and apply the lawful fine or jail time.
OK, one gets hit with some charges including a felony and the other's gonna get hit with a lawsuit. Winner - the lawdogs Waaawaaawaaaaah
