several of the articles have him grabbing him by the collar, others grabbing him by the shoulder....so, yeh, assault....
All I saw before asking my question was that they shook hands and McNutt handed him an envelope that was already addressed to Bonnen. There are too many versions of the story out there to know for sure at this point whether there was an assault or not.

When reading such stories that have numerous versions, it's important to be aware of confirmation bias. Sometimes, we only believe the side of the story that we want to believe or that supports our preconceived ideas or bias.

Each of them knew the other was going to be there. They were both invited by the same donor, in an apparent effort to foster cooperation.
I can accept the first two contentions but not the last one.
Yeah you'll note that I said "apparent" on that one. :) But the donor is Darlene Pendery, and I've read that they were both invited before the flyer canvassing and Bonnen's absurd meltdown.

Depending on what you read and who you believe, he committed assault on McNutt before getting kicked out of the event.
I am no Bonnen or McNutt fan. Did he really assault McNutt?
I wasn't there, so don't take it as a first person account. But that description applies to some accounts, in my opinion. I'd definitely be interested in hearing more accounts (that aren't just reprints of the Texas Tribune angle). I doubt anyone is going to say much unless they're trying to push an agenda one way or another though.

We were sitting at a table in the front of the room, having been invited by a major GOP donor, Darlene Pendery, (they’ve donated a million dollars over the last years to a number of campaigns.) Bonnen came in and leaned over me, grabbed McNutt by the shoulders and began shaking him.
