New York UpFronts Party Hosted By People and Entertainment Weekly

We’ve all experienced a little road rage, but comedian Lil Rel Howery took it a bit too far.

According to reports, The Carmichael Show star was sitting shotgun in Chicago Sunday night when another car slammed into his ride from behind, causing Lil Rel to flip out. Chicago police say that Rel began arguing with the other car’s driver and things quickly got heated. The actor even socked the other guy in the face, knocking him to the ground.

Howery was arrested and booked for misdemeanor battery following the incident. He was released on a $1,500 bond on Monday, June 20. The victim was treated at the scene for a minor abrasion.

Earlier that day, the Chi-Town native was enjoying old school tunes with his son while cruising around on Father’s Day.
