Atlanta Police have issued an arrest warrant for comedian Mike Epps following an alleged assault at a local comedy club.
Officials say the incident happened on June 1 outside the club which is located on the 800 block of Marietta Street.
According to a report, the victim says he was attacked by three black men, including Mike Epps, for making jokes about Epps during an earlier standup routine. The victim said Epps called him earlier threatening him for making a joke.
Reportedly, Epps asked that the victim step outside to "talk" and then struck the victim in the face and kicked him in the stomach and back. The victim claims one of the other two men threw his cell phone on the roof of the club and crushed his prescription glasses.
Epps left the scene in a red Ferrari and the other two men made away in a white GMC Yukon.
The victim was transported to Grady Memorial Hospital with visible bruises and lacerations.
