Scott Baio has been one of Donald Trump's most outspoken celebrity supporters -- a point that clearly doesn't vibe with Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith's wife, Nancy Mack. 

TMZ reports that Mack confronted Baio about his politics at an elementary school event for their children in Thousand Oaks, California, on Saturday. There, she began berating Baio for supporting the president-elect, asking how he could support a man who bragged about grabbing women "by the pussy."

When Baio allegedly asked Mack to stop because there were children present, she was reportedly undeterred and kept repeating the statement because she felt it was important people hear it, since Trump said it. Baio also told police that Mack attacked him, grabbing him under his arms and then shaking and pushing him. 

TMZ cites unnamed sources familiar with the situation who defended Mack's actions saying she was trying to show Baio how Trump aggressively hugs women, denying any intentional physical aggression.

The Ventura County Sheriff's Dept. is reportedly investigating the incident and with Mack listed as a battery suspect.
