The Tom Colicchio kingdom is having a rough time these days. Apparently, last month two men got into a brawl at his elegant Riverpark, leaving one man bloody and the other under arrest. According to the police report, one Romaine Reynolds jumped his 19-year-old co-worker, slashing him in the back of the neck with a fork. Then, since that utensil didn't cut it, he began threatening his victim with a steak knife.

Reynolds was released without bail and told to keep away from his opponent. He's due back in court on March 23. As DNAinfo points out, though the police report describes them as co-workers, it's still unclear whether the two men were co-workers at Riverpark, or whether they were just two co-workers dining there. The restaurant has declined to comment.
