COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Actor and comedian Faizon Love has pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge after an alleged altercation with a valet at the Columbus airport.

Love pleaded not guilty Wednesday in Franklin County Municipal Court and was released on $2,000 bond. He was arrested Tuesday and jailed overnight after authorities alleged he argued with the 24-year-old man and assaulted him in a baggage claim area.

Authorities say Love grabbed the man behind the neck and threw him to the ground and into a desk, then pushed him down when he tried to get up. Video of the altercation was released Wednesday.

Defense attorney John Moore has said there was a disagreement over payment.

Love is scheduled to make appearances at a Columbus comedy club next week.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Actor and comedian Faizon Love has been jailed on a misdemeanor assault charge in Ohio after an alleged altercation with a valet at John Glenn Columbus International Airport.

Authorities allege that Love argued with the 24-year-old man on Tuesday and then assaulted him in a baggage claim area. They say Love grabbed the man behind the neck and threw him to the ground and into a desk, then pushed him down when he tried to get up.

Franklin County Municipal Court records listed no attorney for Love ahead of his arraignment Wednesday.

The 48-year-old actor is perhaps best known for his role as a store’s toy department manager in the movie “Elf.” He is scheduled to make appearances at a Columbus comedy club next week.
