Mike Epps, who was featured in The Hangover, has just been smacked with a lawsuit regarding an altercation with a photographer in which he was involved in a Detroit club back in November.
The cameraman, Douglas Thornton, claims that although he was hired to cover an event for the actor at the Key Club, Epps lost his shiz and tried to take his camera - which then escalated into a "brutal beating."
Legal documents also state that when Thornton was removed from the club, "members of Epps' entourage fired several shots at Thornton, who ran for his life."
His attorney concluded:
"Mr. Epps is lucky he is not facing a murder charge."
Good lord! This thing sounds a whole lot of crazy!
We imagine that there are two sides to this story, so we're very curious to hear what Epps has to say about the entire matter!
