NEW YORK - A Long Island, New York, man was arrested on Tuesday in connection with the weekend assault of V. Stiviano, the woman who recorded Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling making racist remarks that got him banned from the NBA.
Police said Dominick Diorio, 40, was arrested at his home in Old Bethpage, New York, and charged with assault as a hate crime, aggravated harassment and other charges for punching Stiviano in the face outside the Gansevoort Hotel in New York on Sunday.
The attack left Stivano's face swollen and red, her attorney Mac Nehoray, told CNN.
New York Police Department Detective Brian Sessa said the investigation is still ongoing.
