‘It was awful’: Chair-bashing victim details brutal attack

Jurors Wednesday watched dramatic footage of a hulking 6-foot-6 defendant hurling a wooden chair at the heads of a gay couple inside a Chelsea eatery as the victim described from the stand his vicious beating.

Jonathan Snipes, 33, became teary-eyed and cringed as he watched the video of Bayna-Lekheim El-Amin, 42, chuck the chair at his head with such force it made a thunderous noise.


Ethan York-Adams and his boyfriend, Jonathan Snipes.


“The next thing I know is, bam! And we’re hit with this chair,” he said at his assailant’s assault trial in Manhattan Supreme Court.

Patrons can be heard shrieking as Snipes is flung into a chair and his boyfriend Ethan Adams crumples unconscious onto the floor of Dallas BBQ.

“It was awful,” he said. “The sound of the chair, people screaming ‘Stop!’ It was a hard moment.”

The trouble started only a few minutes earlier. Snipes had already tossed back four drinks when he and his boyfriend strolled into Dallas BBQ and ordered two fish bowl margaritas.

Snipes got a phone message that his uncle was sick and became distraught, knocking over his drink.

That’s when he heard someone from a nearby table mutter “a white fagg-t spilling drinks” and believed it was El-Amin, he said.

An infuriated Snipes marched to El-Amin’s table. “What did you just say?” he angrily demanded.

“I was forceful, I was angry, I was definitely intoxicated, but I wanted to know why they thought they could say these things.”

Then, in the video, Snipes fully extends his arm behind his head and smacks El-Amin in the face with his H&M purse.

El-Amin, who is also gay, swiftly leaps from his chair in the video and pounces on Snipes, knocking him to the ground.

Snipes said the towering defendant then kicked and repeatedly stomped on his head as he called him a “f—got!”

“I was shocked,” he said. “I had never been attacked my entire life and he was just so much larger than me.”

After the adversaries were separated and as Snipes examined his bleeding ear and a loose tooth, a fuming El-Amin snuck up behind the men, picked up the chair, crashed it over their heads and fled.

On cross, Snipes admitted he didn’t know whether El-Amin or one of his dining pals called him the racial slur.

“There was only one table, it had to have come from that table,” he said. “Do I specifically know who said it? No.”

The video also shows that after the initial tussle, El-Amin walks away and Snipes pursues him, yelling.

Snipes insisted that he was backing up in the video even though he is clearly seen advancing.
