Mike Epps arrested

During NBA All-Star weekend, actor and comedian Mike Epps, 46, was reportedly arrested in New Orleans for attacking a guy in Harrah’s Casino on Saturday, Feb. 18, 2017 at about 5:02 a.m. A Virginia tourist claims he was walking through the casino when he recognized Epps and said, “Oh, Mike Epps,” he tells the New Orleans Advocate. He says Epps and his friend, Thomas Cobb, 52, hit him in the face repeatedly. He says he cowered until security came to rescue him. Epps and Cobb were arrested for municipal battery and released on $1K bail. Epps skipped his 9 a.m. arraignment on Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2017 in municipal court and an arrest warrant has reportedly been issued for his arrest with a bond set at $2,500.

New Orleans Police Department spokeswoman Ambria Washington said officers have obtained video of the incident but will not be releasing it to the public.

According to Epps’ verified Twitter page, Epps was on a private plane headed who knows where. Perhaps he is headed home to Los Angeles.

He’s on tour and his schedule on shows him scheduled for his next show on Friday, Feb. 24, 2017 in Savannah, Georgia.

      I’m sure the guy isn’t telling the WHOLE story..what celeb you know starts hitting you in the face just for recognizing them?…he probably called Mike a [email protected]@er or talked about his momma just to set him up for assault.

          the new thing to do when someone doesn’t think like you is to call them “liberal”. Frankly, fool, we ALL are liberal to some things and conservative to others but if you are trying to guess I’m a political person like most of you clowns out here today then think again.
