California Governor Gavin Newsom was assaulted by a homeless man during his visit to downtown Oakland, according to reports.

Newsom was “approached by an aggressive individual" while making his way towards a barbershop and pizzeria on Washington Street, Fran Clader, director of communications for the California Highway Patrol, said.

A 54-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assault.

Newsom, who didn't appear to be injured, joked that people have different ways of saying hello.

According to law enforcement sources, the man threw a water bottle at Newsom.

A woman identified as the suspect’s sister said he had severe mental health problems and was homeless.

She said the allegations were “consistent with his past behavior.”

The assault underpins the exploding homeless epidemic in California.

In May, Newsom announced a plan to spend $12 billion to tackle the homelessness crisis as part of his $100 billion “California Comeback Plan.”

Last week, Conservative actor James Woods declared:

"A of Los Angeles County is like this now," referring to a story detailing the demise of Venice Beach, California.

"There are some pockets of respite, but L.A. is gone," Woods declared.

Earlier this month, Neon Nettle reported Newsom was set to receive an almost $9,000 raise following a vote from the California Citizens Compensation Commission (CCCC).

The unanimous vote would also apply to 132 other elected state officials, the Los Angeles Times reported.
