Brautigam, who had battled alcoholism for a dozen years, lamented that the organization’s reputation was impacted in a negative way by the aggressor’s violent behavior that has gone viral after the video was shared on social media.

He added that the attacker’s actions were not in line with Alcoholics Anonymous spiritually-inclined Twelve Step program.

‘It is not an Alcoholics Anonymous practice. It does not represent Alcoholics Anonymous. They are totally isolated events,’ he said. ‘We had not seen such an aggression during my time here.

‘Such an aggression of this magnitude had not been seen. It was painful because today the name of Alcoholics Anonymous is tied to it. It is an organization that has helped millions of people in the world.’
