Middletown — A black man has accused former White House press secretary Sean Spicer of calling him a racial slur when they were students at a Rhode Island prep school.

Spicer was at a book signing in Middletown on Friday to promote his new book reflecting on his time at the press podium for President Donald Trump.

Cambridge, Massachusetts, resident Alex Lombard yelled out Spicer's name and accused Spicer of calling him the N-word and trying to fight him when they attended Portsmouth Abbey School.

A security guard led Lombard away.

Spicer appeared to recognise Lombard. He initially waved to him and said: "Hey. Yeah. How are you?"

A Newport Daily News video doesn't show how Spicer reacted to being accused of using the racial slur. A Spicer spokesperson hasn't returned an email seeking comment.
