Mike Epps Allegedly Beats Up Comedian Over Parody Video

Actor reportedly got violent with comic who made jokes at his expense.

Published June 3, 2014

Mike Epps was allegedly involved in yet another violent episode on Saturday night, this time against a comedian who made a few jokes at the actor's expense.

TMZ reports that Epps assaulted an Atlanta comic who used the actor's rumored beef with Kevin Hart as material in his stand-up act. The alleged victim, Lavar Walker, recounted to police that someone told him Epps was waiting outside the club to speak to him. 

When Walker got outside, he told police, he was struck in the face by Epps, and then attacked by two other men. Walker was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment.

According to Atlanta police, no arrest warrants have been issued as yet. 

Epps was the target of assault accusations in April when a woman said he punched her in the face at the premiere of his pal Marlon Wayans's film A Haunted House 2. Those charges were dropped in May.
