Actor Faizon Love gets suspended sentence in assault case
COLUMBUS, Ohio — Actor and comedian Faizon Love has received a suspended sentence after pleading no contest to a misdemeanour assault charge for an alleged altercation with an Ohio airport valet.
The Columbus Dispatch reports a municipal court judge in Franklin County found Love guilty of the first-degree misdemeanour on June 30. Love was given a 180day suspended jail sentence and a $500 fine.
Love was arrested March 7 after authorities say he argued with and then assaulted the 24-yearold valet in the Columbus airport’s baggage claim area. Authorities say Love grabbed the man behind the neck and threw him to the ground and into a desk, then pushed him down when he tried to get up. Defence attorney John Moore has said there was a disagreement over payment.
