Discovery Channel show accused of assault

The Discovery Channel let cameras roll as cast members of the biker reality show "The Devils Ride" beat a man in a bar brawl, and then broadcast the assault without his consent, the man claims in court.

Plaintiff Ashi Fachler, who describes himself as a "street photographer," says the now-defunct Lincoln Room invited "Devils Ride" filmmakers into the bar on the night of Jan. 27, 2012 so cast members could provoke fights with members of the public for the reality show.

Fachler claims that as he took pictures outside the crowded bar, things got out of hand. With cameras rolling, he says, members of the "Devils Ride" cast kicked and punched him and hit him with glasses and "other objects yet unknown."
