    Exercise guru Richard Simmons cited for assault

    PHOENIX, Arizona (AP) -- Exercise guru Richard Simmons allegedly slapped a man who made a sarcastic remark about one of his videos, police said.

    Simmons, known for his "Sweatin' to the Oldies" series of exercise videos set to songs from the 1950s and '60s, was cited for misdemeanor assault.

    A fellow passenger recognized Simmons on Wednesday night at Phoenix's Sky Harbor International Airport as he was waiting for a flight to Los Angeles, police said.

    The man "made the off-hand comment, 'Hey, everybody. It's Richard Simmons. Let's drop our bags and rock to the '50s,"' said Phoenix police Sgt. Tom Osborne. "Mr. Simmons took exception to it and walked over to the other passenger and apparently slapped him in the face."

    The passenger, whose identity wasn't immediately available, wasn't injured but told police that he intended to file charges against Simmons, 55.

    Osborne said Simmons was cited for misdemeanor assault and permitted to board his flight.

    I'm sorry, but no amount of money would make me want to go on the record, under oath, saying that I got assaulted by Richard Simmons. I would keep my mouth shut, hope nobody saw it, and move away to whatever town Steve Bartman took off to.

    On a related note, Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Ridge has now raised the current national threat level to pink.

    Both Richard Simmons and Dion Sanders went to Florida State. The only differences between the two is that Richard isn't afraid of contact and is willing to cover a tight end.

    Whover the guy is filing charges is the worst dude ever. What do you tell your buddies your going to court for? "Hey guys, I gotta go to court because I got bi**h slapped by 55 year old Richard Simmons."

    Note to guy who got slapped. Check between your legs and see if anything is hanging down.
