DAYUM!!! Maybe Day-Day Can Get A Loan From Smokey.
Day-Day is about to get into some major hot water and I don’t believe even Craig can help him out in this situation. It seems Mike Epps may have forgotten that there are just some things you can’t do when you have money. Especially when you have a well known face like his.
According to TMZ, a Detroit photographer wants a million dollars for being on the receiving end of Mike Epps‘ fist a couple of months ago… the target of his hoodrat friends’ bullets.
Mike Epps just got sued for $1 million for punching a photog back in November — but the victim claims the violence didn’t end there … accusing Epps’ friends of firing shots at him as he tried to escape.
Cameraman Douglas Thornton filed the seven-figure lawsuit today in Michigan — claiming he was covering a public event hosted for Epps at the Key Club in Detroit. According to Thornton, Epps went ballistic and started grabbing at Thornton’s camera … at which point a fist-flying brawl erupted.
Thornton claims Epps unleashed a “brutal beating” — and after Thornton was physically removed from the club, “members of Epps’ entourage fired several shots at Thornton who ran for his life.”
Thornton’s attorney tells TMZ, “Mr. Epps is lucky he is not facing a murder charge.”
According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, Thornton claims he was “hired to film the party that was being thrown for Mike Epps.”
It’s really sad to see some of the best of the best crack under media scrutiny. Not that it’s right or wrong for photographers to be taking pictures of you in public, but there should be a limit. Maybe Mike can get through this one without major problems.
