Kovacik politely asked the man to stop.  Instead, he hauled off and slugged him!

"Last night at the Polo Lounge my friend, Robert Kovacik was viciously attacked by an aggressive drunk.  Am shocked and upset," Lisa Tweeted Friday.

Cops were called to the scene after the incident occurred, the BHPD spokesperson confirms to RadarOnline.com but at the time Kovacik "declined further police actions and all parties left the hotel."

Kovacik decided to pursue the matter after having his split lip stitched up by a plastic surgeon Friday morning.
