New video obtained by Channel 2 Action News shows the moments that an actor was allegedly beat up by rapper Machine Gun Kelly’s entourage at a Buckhead hotel last month.

Rodriguez was in Atlanta filming a television show at the time of the attack.

“He’s a coward for having his goons jump me," he said.
