This election season has people acting crazy!
Actor Wendell Pierce was arrested and charged with battery early Sunday morning after getting into an altercation at the Loews Atlanta Hotel.
New Orleans native Pierce is known for his television roles as Detective William “Bunk” Moreland on The Wire and Antoine Batiste on Treme.
According to TMZ, Pierce allegedly got into a physical altercation with a man and woman, reportedly a couple, at the hotel after a political dispute. It’s alleged that Pierce got upset when he found out the couple were Bernie Sanders supporters, and he’s a Hillary Clinton supporter. Pierce then allegedly pushed the man and grabbed the hair of the woman and smacked her in the head. TMZ reports that the couple then called the police.
Pierce was booked into a Fulton County jail, and then released on $1,000 bond.
