George Lopez is said to appear in court next month after being charged by the law enforcement for allegedly getting handsy with a fan who trolled him with a Trump joke and a camera in his face.
He’s being charged on a misdemeanor battery charge for allegedly roughing up a guy who tried filming him at a Hooters in October this year as he was leaving the restaurant.
Report has it that George grabbed the back of the young man’s neck… a guy who had previously asked to take a pic with the comedian. The guy then jabbed George with a Trump joke, and then all hell broke loose as George decided to take the guy’s gesture personally.
The police report, also states that cops tracked George down the next day at a golf course and asked for his side of the story. He, however told the cops that he didn’t want to be filmed, and that explains why he tried grabbing the guy’s phone away.
George also revealed to the cops that he believes the guy was trying to bait him by lying in wait at the front door and by throwing out “MAGA” jokes, knowing fully well that George is anti-Trump.
The officer says he informed George he’d be receiving a court summons for misdemeanor battery and that George was compliant.
