NextImg:Chaos at OB/GYN conference as enraged husband slaps doctor, claims he sexually assaulted his wife

A man strode up to a panel of OB/GYNs last month in Baltimore and abruptly slapped the speaker – claiming the Long Island-based physician had sexually assaulted his wife.

Video of the scene went viral after an anonymous user put it on Twitter Friday.

In the clip, the man can be seen stepping up onto the stage, grabbing the stunned doctor’s shirt collar, and appears to push him back a step or two.

The physician appears to look around as the much taller man holds him at the neck, points at him and then turns to the crowd and says, “This motherf—er sexually assaulted my wife,” the footage shows.

Baltimore Police confirmed to WMAR that the physical assault on the doctor occurred at the May 20 conference.

The doctor, who has not been publicly identified, has not been charged with any crime. He practices at Stony Brook University Medical Center, WMAR reported.

“The assaulted individual stated that he did not want to file criminal charges or file a report against the individual who physically assaulted him and that he would prefer the individual be escorted off the premises,” a police spokesperson said.

The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology sent an email about the incident to its physicians, prompting one doctor to reach out to the group for clarification. The ACOG then posted a statement about the incident to Twitter Thursday.

“We recognize that those who witnessed the incident in person or online may have experienced trauma as a result, including many of you who have experienced sexual assault or other violence in the past,” the group said in the statement.

The clip was apparently posted in response to the ACOG and has garnered 1.3 million views.

“We take this matter seriously. Stony Brook University officials are reviewing the circumstances and taking the necessary measures to address any issues resulting from this incident,” Stony Brook University Medical Center told WMAR in a statement.

The Post was unable to immediately reach the doctor.
