According to the Boston Globe, Murray walked over and poured a glass of water on him and his camera when he was seated at a table.
"He treated me like the scum of the earth," said Simon.
Murray told police Simon was taking pictures and harassing him while he was “quietly minding his business,” according to the police report obtained by the Boston Globe. Police said Murray appeared to be “visibly upset.”
The restaurant owner told police Simon “had no business photographing anyone in the restaurant, and was generally annoying,” according to the report.
Simon maintained he was invited to photograph the Marotta Brothers Band, and he didn’t feature Murray in any photographs published from that night.
"I'm not a paparazzi-type photographer, I'm just not," Simon told the Boston Globe.
Simon is singer Carly Simon's brother and has an extensive career of photographing musicians and celebrities, the Associated Press reported.
No charges have been filed in the case.
Murray has not responded to calls for comment.
This wouldn’t be the first time Murray has had a run-in with a professional photographer.
In 2017, he argued with a man trying to take his picture at a meet-and-greet following a concert and yelled at a woman who asked to take a picture with him, according to The Chicago Tribune.
