The Carmichael Show‘s Lil’Rel Howery (Bobby Carmichael) hasn’t been famous for that long but he’s already making headlines for the wrong reasons.
The Chicago native reportedly got into an altercation with a driver after getting into an argument over a car crash. He allegedly punched the driver in the face.
The Chicago Tribune reports:
Howery, 36, was a passenger in a vehicle that slammed into another car near the 1100 block West Taylor Street at 10:40 p.m. Sunday, according to the Chicago Police Department.
He allegedly punched the victim in the face when the victim tried to dial 911. Howery’s driver fled the scene before officers arrived, police said.
The victim was treated at the scene for minor abrasions to his hand and elbow.
Howery was charged with misdemeanor battery. He was released early Monday on a $1,500 bond.
