Comedian George Lopez made the news recently for getting into a physical altercation with a Trump supporter who ‘taunted’ him. The comedian has now been charged and will be heading to court.
According to Page Six:
Comedian George Lopez will face a judge over an alleged scuffle he had with a pro-President Trump heckler at a New Mexico Hooters, a report said Friday.
Lopez, 57, will appear in court next month on a misdemeanor battery charge for allegedly lunging at the man Oct. 18 in Las Cruces, law enforcement sources told TMZ.
In a 15-second cell phone clip obtained by the outlet, a man can be heard making jabs at Lopez, who then tries to grab the phone away and appears to go for the heckler’s neck.
A source close to the comedian told TMZ the man had been in Lopez’s face all night, making pro-Trump statements and yelling “MAGA!”
The comedian reportedly told cops that he did not want to be filmed and he was just defending himself. Apparently, that wasn’t enough and charges were pressed.
