Is there a bigger coward in Newport, RI than former Buzz freelancer Tristan Pinnock?

So here’s the deal. On Saturday, December 7th at 6pm, I went to the Bowen’s Wharf Christmas Tree lighting with my girlfriend. It was a wonderful night and the tree was beautiful.

So anyway, the tree lighting was lots of fun and all was going well. We were having a wonderful evening and decided that we’d head home to cook dinner and have a quiet night. So on our way home we stopped by Vickers Liquors to grab some wine to enjoy with dinner. (Shoutout FitVine Wine!)

Anyway, as you’ll see in the video below, our plans were changed a bit when Tristan Pinnock decided to go psycho and felt the need to attack me unprovoked.

You’ll see, as we were leaving the store I was wearing eyeglasses and had two bottles of FitVine Wine in my hands when Tristan Pinnock decided to headbutt me with ZERO provocation or warning. Zero. Just a cowardly scumbag move to attack someone wearing glasses and with their hands full. What a loser!

So here’s the video. (keep in mind that this happened at 7:25pm and not 2:00am)


Here’s the result of the attack.

Anyway. Tristan Pinnock ran away and hid like a coward but was promptly arrested by the Newport Police thanks to their hard work and determination to take this menace off the streets of Newport, RI.

But don’t worry. I’ll be fine! And thank you to the literally hundreds of people who have reached out to me over the last 24 hours!

PS – Tristan Pinnock is the same idiot who sued me a few years back claiming that he was the rightful owner of Newport Buzz. What a joke of a human being!

Stay tuned…

Oh and this is Tristan Pinnock in case you don’t know who he is.

Nope. Not creepy at all.
