(Newser) – Jodie Foster is famously private, but she finds herself in the news today after allegedly attacking a 17-year-old on May 29. After the boy, a Foster fan, spotted her in a parking lot and snapped some pictures, Foster “pushed and shoved him leaving scratches and bruises on his arm,” the teen’s dad tells Radar. “She came after him, poked him in the chest and said, 'Do you even have a mother you slime ball?'”

The alleged victim “didn't mouth back at all and was scared of her,” his father continues, noting that after his son apologized to Foster, one of Foster’s sons came back and apologized to him. Not surprisingly, the teen—who filed a police report—is no longer a fan of Foster. “He's a good kid; kind of small for his age,” says his dad. “There was no threat to Jodie.”
