First One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson, now Faizon Love — it hasn’t been a smooth start to the month for celebrities in airports.
Page Six reports that the incident took place Tuesday (March 7) at John Glenn Columbus International Airport and involved Faizon and a 24-year-old male valet. Authorities say Faizon and the valet were arguing before the actor escalated the situation by assaulting the smaller man in the baggage claim area.
It’s said that Faizon “grabbed the man behind the neck and threw him to the floor and into a desk, then pushed him down when he tried to get up.”
Even after the physical element of the altercation ended, Faizon reportedly provoked the valet with his words, saying, “Let me show you what a man do.”
TMZ’s story on the incident says the dispute was sparked over how much the valet was charging Faizon. The outlet adds that Faizon was released from police custody Wednesday morning (March 8) before his arraignment on $2,000 bond.
He had traveled to Columbus for a comedy gig next week.
