SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- A man took a coconut cream pie from a grocery bag, grabbed Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson from behind and smacked him in the face with it at a charity event, leading the former NBA star to start swinging and then tackle the man who was left battered and facing assault charges.The pie wielder and local activist, Sean Thompson, 32, said Thursday that the mayor overreacted, sending him to the hospital for nine stitches before he went to jail. He said he was angry Johnson devoted so much political energy to an arena for the citys basketball team and not to other needs such as education and homelessness.The mayor was greeting people eating at an outdoor charity dinner Wednesday night at Sacramento Charter High School when Thompson pulled Johnson back and shoved the pie in his face, said Johnsons chief of staff, Crystal Strait.There was no throwing of the pie, said Erika Bjork, who works for a professional soccer team in Sacramento and saw the encounter up close. This was a direct assault. It just happened that he had a pie in his hand.Bjork, whose boss is a major donor to Johnson, said the mayor looked shocked and swung at Thompson multiple times, but she didnt see him land any punches.Thompson had red and blue bruises and a roughly 1-inch line of stitches under his left eye when he spoke to The Associated Press in jail.When I threw the pie at him, right at that moment, I shouted at him. I said, `You need to better represent me, Thompson said.He said the mayor turned and hit him at least twice and pretty hard. Thompson said he covered his face and started to move away but was quickly surrounded by people and kept taking hits. He couldnt tell who delivered the blows.Thompson said he expected to be tackled by police but was caught off guard when the punches came from the mayor. He said he has no regrets but was surprised to be facing a felony, assaulting a public official.He was held on $100,000 bail and was expected to be formally charged Friday.Johnsons signature achievement in office was getting a $550 million arena built for the Sacramento Kings, which Thompson said took attention away from other issues.Cres Vellucci, who organizes legal support for activists at the National Lawyers Guild in Sacramento, said people in the social justice community are concerned about Thompsons safety and Johnsons physical response.Prosecutors will review the case, including the mayors reaction, after receiving the police reports, likely on Friday, district attorney spokeswoman Shelly Orio said.Whether youre hit in the face with a pie or a fist, youve been assaulted and youre generally allowed to respond with similar force, said Rory Little, a former litigator and professor at University of California Hastings College of the Law.Johnsons response probably is not a disproportionate reaction, though it might not be the reaction we want our public officials to have, Little said.Vellucci wrote in an email that he met Thompson five years ago and described him as a nonviolent person who participated in some of the first Black Lives Matter protests in Sacramento in 2014 and in Occupy Sacramento rallies before that.Police and Johnsons chief of staff said Thompson was not previously known to the mayor and his staff. In an interview with local TV stations, Thompson said hes interacted with Johnson many times during city meetings for activists and that the mayor often appears disinterested and unengaged in community members concerns.Johnson is well-known for his efforts to revitalize Oak Park, a predominantly African-American neighborhood.Hes a graduate of the high school where the event was held Wednesday and brought it back from the brink of dissolution in the early 2000s by incorporating it in a system of charter schools he founded to help disadvantaged communities.Johnson, who had a long career as an NBA All-Star with the Phoenix Suns and a brief stint with the Cleveland Cavaliers, has about two months left as mayor. He decided not to seek a third term.---Associated Press writer Jonathan J. Cooper contributed to this report.---This story has been corrected to show that the first name of Cres Vellucci was misspelled Chris and that Thompson had injuries around his left eye, not his right.

But underneath the professional exterior he was, and is, compellingly human. Cheap Tim Settle Jersey . Argentina winger Ezequiel Lavezzi and France midfielder Blaise Matuidi scored, with star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic setting up both despite having a poor game by his high standards. Forward Eduardo gave Ajaccio the lead in the sixth minute after being set up by right winger Benjamin Andre, and the Corsican side looked comfortable in the first half, with the lively Johan Cavalli causing problems with his probing runs from midfield. http://www.cheapredskinsjerseyselite.com/?tag=cheap-daron-payne-jersey . -- Edmontons Val Sweeting is two wins away from a trip to Winnipeg to play in Canadas Road of the Rings in December.

"Jeff is a hard worker who was an important special-teams contributor for us last season," said Stamps GM John Hufnagel. Even if Michael Ennis NRL career ends without a 2016 premiership ring, North Queenslands Jason Taumalolo reckons the Cronulla rake is already guaranteed one title - the leagues most irritating player.But Taumalolo did not warm to the prospect of finally silencing Ennis by bringing an abrupt halt to his playing days this week.Retiring Sharks No.9 Ennis is expected to be at his niggling best in Friday nights preliminary final against North Queensland at Allianz Stadium.Few would argue after Ennis copped plenty of criticism for taunting Raiders fans with his own Viking clap following the Sharks opening finals win in Canberra.For the record, Taumalolo reckoned he could see the funny side of Ennis dig at Canberra fans.It was pretty funny seeing him after the Raiders game, I couldnt stop laughing at that moment, he said.But that is him to a tee.He will be just as much of a pest on Friday night - it should be quite the battle in the middle.Taumalolo could not argue though when asked if Ennis was on the all time most annoying players list.I think he would be up there but I dont think you have to ask me about that, he smiled.I speak for most of the NRL that Mick is definitely up there as onne of the most annoying players in the comp.ddddddddddddTaumalolo now has the chance to have the final say against Ennis.Taumalolos extraordinary 263-metre effort inspired North Queenslands extra-time semi-final win over Brisbane last week.It also helped end Broncos captain Corey Parkers NRL career.One week later he can do the same for Ennis - not that he looked forward to it.He is one of the best players in that position in the modern day era, Taumalolo said of Ennis.If he retires on Friday night it would be a pretty tragic way to end a career.He handles himself well for a small body, he definitely puts his body on the line (in defence).On Friday night we will definitely leave it all out on the field.Taumalolo said he knew he would have to back up from his semi-finals heroics against the Cronulla pack.They are a physical pack spearheaded by Paul Gallen, he said.But in saying that they have Andrew Fifita who is just as damaging and they get a lot of second phase play from Wade Graham and Matt Prior.They have a forward pack that has a bit of everything.
