Eric Bolling of BlazeTV detailed an altercation he had with a man who ambushed him with a hateful despicable comment about his late son while he was dining Wednesday in a restaurant in Washington, D.C.
Bolling said he followed the man and confronted him outside the restaurant, and discovered that the ambush might not have been a spontaneous act, but orchestrated for video.
"A guy who appeared to be talking on his cellphone walked by our table," Bolling recounted, "and turned towards us and said, 'Eric Bolling's son killed himself because he was embarrassed by his dad.' It was a drive-by hit on me using the most hateful words a human being can deliver to a grieving father."
Bolling said he followed the man out of the hotel and confronted him. Some of that interaction was captured on video.
"Now I chased him down and yelled whatever comes to the mind of man who's just been told his only killed himself because of him," he explained. "Yup, I used some bad words."
Bolling said there appeared to be a second person "lurking" with a camera, ready to capture his reaction to the insult.
"He had this disturbing huge smile on his face, even after I mentioned Eric Chase being dead," Bolling explained. "These men are despicable people."
Eric Chase Bolling Jr. died from ingesting fentanyl and Xanax in September 2017 a day after his father parted ways with Fox News. Bolling has said the coroner told him the death appeared to be accidental.

"Last night I came face to face with true evil," Bolling said. "Over politics, folks, have we all lost our collective minds?"
He said that if the men intended to shut him up about his support for President Donald Trump that they had done the opposite and motivated him to continue.
Bolling has used his experience to advocate for more awareness on the national opioid crisis.
"God bless the President Trump, God bless his supporters, God bless the United States of America, and godd*mn those among us, who use hate to fuel a political agenda," he concluded.
