    Kevin de León and city of LA sued by activist for Holiday party confrontation

    In the lawsuit filed Thursday with the Los Angeles Superior Court, activist Jason Reedy alleged that de León “grabbed, pushed and hit” him at the Dec. 9 community Christmas event.

    A group of activists, including Reedy, gathered at the event, where they demanded de León’s resignation for his participation in a recorded, racist conversation about council redistricting with fellow city officials.

    The protestors confronted the councilman and continued their calls for him to step down. As de León made his way into the event, the group followed him.

    Reedy puts his head against de León’s, and appears to lightly bump heads with him twice. At this point, the councilmember steps forward and grabs Reedy, forcing him onto a table.

    Both men filed battery reports with the Los Angeles Police Department.

    City News Service contributed to this report.
