MIke Epps Is Wanted By The Cops
(AllHIpHop News) Police in New Orleans, Louisiana have issued a warrant for comedian Mike Epps' arrest after he skipped a court date relating to a weekend bust up.
The Friday star reportedly became involved in an altercation with a man who recognized the actor at Harrah's Casino in the early hours of Saturday (February 18).
The alleged victim, who was visiting the city for the NBA All-Star Weekend, claims Epps and his friend, Thomas Cobb, suddenly attacked him for no reason, prompting venue security guards to intervene and call the cops.
Epps and Cobb were arrested for battery and freed on $1,000 bail.
Both men were due to appear in court for arraignment hearings on Tuesday morning (February 21), but they were no shows, and have since become wanted men.
Representatives for Epps have yet to comment on the reports.
The 46-year-old is currently in the middle of a comedy tour, and while he has been promoting his shows on social media, he has made no mention of his arrest online.
His next stand up show is scheduled for Savannah, Georgia on Friday (February 24).
