The Wire star Wendell Pierce was arrested Saturday after allegedly physically assaulting a woman supporting Bernie Sanders.
According to TMZ, Pierce got into a heated argument at 3 A.M. with a couple at Loews Hotel in Atlanta. The talk turned political and Wendell, a big Hillary Clinton supporter, got upset when the woman declared her support for Bernie. He then allegedly became enraged, pushed the boyfriend and then went after his girlfriend grabbing her hair and smacking her in the head.
The couple then left the scene and made for their room where they contacted hotel security, who in turn called the Atlanta police department. Pierce was eventually arrested on charges of assault and battery, and he was released from custody on a $1,000 bond.
