An unidentified man approached Belafonte and began shouting racial epithets.
"I was defending myself," he said. "The police came and took him away. "Violence is never the answer, but you have to defend yourself."
Amidst the ruckus, Belafonte had his shirt ripped off and the attacker had a gash on his head.
Neither party involved filed a complaint and police decided not to pursue charges.
