Newly released video shows the "free hugs guy" punching an innocent Canadian woman in the face after she refused to give him a tip.
24-year-old Jermaine Himmelstein has evidently made a career out of offering "free hugs" then assaulting women who don't give him "tips" in return.
WABC reports Himmelstein has been arrested 16 times, including just days ago on April 29th for punching another young woman in the face under the exact same circumstances. He reportedly told his victim, "You will respect me or I will (expletive) knock you out."
Despite his history of violence, the bureaucrats in New York felt it was A-OK to release him back into the streets.
