According to court documents filed by the alleged victim, Doherty, and his bodyguard, King Kongg, real name Justin Goslee, the incident took place on October 29, 2023, at a Halloween party.

Gardella claims the 20-year-old and Goslee were having a conversation outside the home where the party was taking place when Goslee asked the YouTuber, "What are we doing," to which Doherty responded, "We are gonna fight. Us two versus you two, alright go."

Doherty allegedly gestured towards Gardella and his friend, and "moments later, Goslee violently punched [Gardella] in the face, sending him falling to the ground and causing serious physical injuries to his head, face, and neck."

The YouTuber live-streamed the attack on Gardella on Kick, a live-streaming platform, and even shared videos of the shocking incident on other social media platforms, such as YouTube, X, and TikTok.

The lawsuit claims that Doherty still generates income from views generated by the gruesome video, all to Gardella's "detriment."

In the legal filing, it was noted that the YouTuber has a "history" of recording himself "harassing," "assaulting," and "antagonizing members of the public" by having his bodyguards intimidate them and then proceed to assault them if they react.

Now, Gardella is suing for assault, battery, negligence, negligent hiring, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

Doherty has yet to respond to the lawsuit.
