Mike Epps is in trouble. Again.

The comedian has a warrant out for his arrest stemming from a Saturday night casino brawl in New Orleans. Epps and his companion allegedly beat up a man named Algernon Pitre after Pitre asked Epps for an autograph. 

Pitre told The Advocate he approached Epps after cashing in his chips. “I said ‘Oh, Mike Epps!’” he said. “The next thing I know, he started hitting me in the face, unprovoked. I had a handful of chips, so I just basically bent down to protect myself, and then my friends ran over and got in front of me, and then security got there.”
