Actor Faizon Love, probably best known for his role in the comedy film, “Elf,” was recently jailed after beating up an airport valet because, Love claimed, the valet spat on him. And the actor says he has no remorse at all for the attack.
The actor was arrested in Ohio on March 7 at John Glenn Columbus International airport after his argument with the valet turned physical, according to The Daily Mail.
The 48-year-old actor insisted he feels no remorse for his attack. “I wish I could say sorry or feel remorse, but sometime (sic) somebody got to get there a** whipped,” he told gossip site TMZ.
“I was about to walk away and then he tried to spit on me,” he added.
“So that’s why when you see me walk away, he spit but it missed and that’s why I was like, ‘oh hell no.’ And that’s when I grabbed him right there,” Love concluded.
TMZ had the surveillance video taken inside the airport and it shows the 6’1″ and 370-pound actor getting physical with the much smaller airport employee.
If the employee spat at the actor, the video doesn’t really substantiate the accusation.
A bystander at the airport also took cellphone video of the attack and features Love yelling out that he will show the valet “what a man does” as he continued to threaten him.
The actor insisted that the argument began when the valet service tried to charge him a “crazy price.”
It was during the argument over the price, Love insisted, that the valet employee tried to spit at him.
In further comments to TMZ, the actor slammed today’s generation of young people.
“These kids are just running rampant and they talk crazy to you on Twitter and they don’t understand, on Twitter they safe,” Love said.
“In life you can’t talk crazy to people, especially the grown folks, and you can’t spit on nobody. You can’t do any of that imaginary stuff online,” he insisted.
The actor was held over night in the Franklin County jail in Columbus and appeared in court the next morning. He pleaded not guilty and paid a $2,000 bond.
If convicted of the assault he could receive a maximum of six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.
