Kellyanne Conway claims she was assaulted at a Maryland restaurant last year when a woman grabbed and shook her — but the woman’s lawyer says the White House counselor’s account is “false.”

Conway described the October incident at Uncle Julio’s, a Mexican restaurant in Bethesda, in an interview with CNN.


Conway told CNN that the woman, identified as Mary Elizabeth Inabinett, 63, was “screaming her head off” while Conway’s daughter watched.

The woman also grabbed and shook her for a few seconds, Conway claims.

“Somebody was grabbing me from behind, grabbing my arms, and was shaking me to the point where I felt maybe somebody was hugging me,” Conway said for the upcoming CNN series “Badass Women of Washington.”

Conway described the woman as “out of control.”

The woman grabbed her for a few seconds, but continued to gesture and scream at her “for approximately 8-10 minutes,” Conway told police.

Inabinett’s lawyer, William McDaniel, denies the claims.

“Ms. Inabinett saw Kellyanne Conway, a public figure, in a public place, and exercised her First Amendment right to express her personal opinions. She did not assault Ms. Conway. The facts at trial will show this to be true, and show Ms. Conway’s account to be false,” McDaniel said in a statement to the Daily News.

When police arrived, the restaurant’s manager — who only saw the women away from each other and witnessed not physical contact when she first saw the incident — said the alleged attacker yelled “shame on you.”

Conway has been known for facts-challenged TV interviews in support of President Trump’s agenda — including her coining the term “alternative facts” to describe falsehoods.

Conway’s daughter took a video of the incident, which was later used to help identify the woman, according to the CNN report.

Inabinett has been charged with second-degree assault and disorderly conduct, records show. She’s set to appear in court in March. Efforts to reach her were unsuccessful Friday.
