A man was arrested today for allegedly assaulting V. Stiviano, the woman at the center of the Donald Sterling controversy, in New York City June 1.

Dominick Diorio, 40, of Old Bethpage, New York, has been charged with third-degree assault as a hate crime, assault, harassment and aggravated harassment in connection with the incident involving Stiviano outside the Gansevoort Hotel, New York police said Tuesday.

The incident happened at about 7 p.m. near the hotel in Manhattan and involved two men, said Mac Nehoray, Stiviano’s lawyer.

Nehoray said Stiviano was examined by a doctor after the incident and found to be “banged up but OK."

Stiviano, 31, entered the public spotlight in March, after recordings between her and Sterling emerged online featuring the since-ousted Los Angeles Clippers owner’s racist rants.
