Mario Batali to Face Criminal Assault Charge

Celebrity chef Mario Batali will face a criminal assault charge in Massachusetts.

The Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office said Batali was expected to be arraigned Friday in Boston Municipal Court on a charge of indecent assault and battery.

The charges stem from an incident at a restaurant in Back Bay on March 31, 2017.

More to come.
