Johnny Knoxville attacked in bar

Maybe hoping to reenact the bar fight scene from the movie The Dukes of Hazzard, a man attacked Johnny Knoxville while the actor was at a bar with drinking buddies Steve-O and Chris Pontius.

According to witnesses, the man walked up to Knoxville and shoved him against the wall. Steve-O and Chris escorted the man outside and Johnny was able to talk to the man and diffuse the situation. Johnny told Spin magazine this is a common occurence. "People think by challenging me they're going to show they're tough." the wild stuntsman told the magazine. "But I'm not tough. Decent drinker, not a bad kisser, but not a great fighter." Just more proof that some people can be real jackasses.
