Mike Epps pulled a Mike Tyson!
Last month comedian Mike Epps was caught on video punching a photographer. According to the star, the photographer was harassing him and his wife while they were at a party.
Epps told TMZ he was at a club in Detroit when the photographer, who was filming, began talking trash to him and his wife. He said it was a private birthday celebration for his wife.
The comedian said he tried to take the tape out of the camera, after he asked the photographer to not film them several times.
On the video Epps is shown punching the paparazzi. Before things got out of control, security broke up the fight.
Looks like Epps will be facing a lawsuit for assault soon. Didn’t he see what happened to Mike Tyson? When a paparazzi was harassing him at the airport with his family, he assaulted the photographer. The photographer pressed charges against the boxing champ and he was ordered to pay his medical bills. If the photographer decides to press charges against Epps, he too will have to pay.
A paparazzi will do anything to get a picture, even risk getting a beatdown at a public restaurant. So far no charges have been filed against Mike. Maybe the photographer knows he probably can’t afford to pay a lawsuit.
