NEW YORK (WABC) -- A 40-year-old man was arrested during a dispute with the handler of one of Times Square's half-naked women.

Joseph Mazza of Totowa, N.J. screamed and spit at one of the women at West 44th Street and Broadway Monday night, authorities said.

When her handler got involved, Mazza allegedly head-butted him in the groin.

Mazza was charged with assault and disorderly conduct.

The handler, 25 year-old Christopher Olivieri, was being treated for injuries to the groin.
