Alfonso Ribeiro: Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’s ‘Carlton’ Breaks Up Brawl

Filed in Gather Celeb News Channel by on August 5, 2011 0 Comments

Former Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star Alfonso Ribeiro is famous for his role as the uptight, pompous, and preppy Carlton. Now Ribeiro is in the news, not for getting into a fight, but breaking one up.

AlfonsocroppedAlfonso Ribeiro is being called a hero (and not a nerd) after breaking up a fight between two hairstylists while he was getting a haircut. The reported brawl took place at In the Cuts in Los Angeles, when an argument escalated. Ribeiro was apparently mid-haircut when the fight broke out. He jumped from his chair and broke up the altercation.

After the fight ended, Alfonso Ribeiro left the salon, without finishing his cut. There is no word as to whether “Carlton” ever did finish his trim. The least the salon could do for him is to give the guy a free haircut, since a brawl caused him to be walking around Los Angeles with a half-complete hairdo.

The real question is, clearly Alfonso is not scared to jump into a fracas, but would the character he played on the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air done the same thing?
