For Whitmans, Shoving is a Family Affair

A day after the New York Times reported that Meg Whitman had to pay an eBay employee as much as $200,000 for shoving her, Gawker is reporting that Whitman's son also has a shoving problem.

According to a police report, Griffith Rutherford Harsh V was accused of pushing a woman at a Palo Alto bar in 2006 after one of her friends mocked his fraternity. The woman fell backwards and broke her ankle.


Harsh, then a 21-year-old Princeton sophomore, was charged with felony battery. The case was later dismissed. No word on whether the victim, Valerie Sanchez, was able to secure a payout.
