I watch a lot of HGTV, mostly because I’m a poor Manhattanite who can’t fathom the idea of a $800,000 mortgage for a 500-square foot apartment. It’s lifestyle porn. One of the last people on HGTV I’d ever expect to be a turd IRL is one of the twins from Property Brothers.
Apparently one of the Scott brothers went full d-bag at a bar in North Dakota, of all places. He lost his cool at closing time and then pulled the infamous “DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?” line that automatically makes anyone a douchenozzle. Via Page Six:

Security camera footage shows Scott resisting bar staff while being escorted out. The video shows Scott returning before being physically removed again.
Scott reported the encounter to police and told them he had been put in a chokehold.
Fargo City Attorney Erik Johnson tells The Associated Press there’s not enough evidence to establish a crime.
