Wayne Brady did not have the best day recently. According to TMZ, the actor and comedian was in a car accident on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu. While a car accident is stressful enough, the confrontation between Brady and the driver started out with a heated verbal exchange, which then turned physical.
The other driver took off and was subsequently arrested on charges of battery, DUI, and hit-and-run after he was tracked down by authorities.
Accident Sunday Night
TMZ’s law enforcement sources recounted the incident, which occurred on Sunday night. Apparently, Wayne Brady’s vehicle was struck by another car.
The two drivers then pulled over before the situation escalated both verbally and physically. Brady dialed 911 to report the incident after the altercation occurred and the other man fled the scene.
No Serious Injuries
Wayne Brady is known as one of the friendliest and most amiable personalities in Hollywood, so this is certainly an unexpected story.
Fortunately, Brady did not sustain any serious injuries from the accident or the altercation, as he only reported some soreness and being a bit banged up.
Although the fire department responded to the scene, Brady did not have to be taken to the hospital either.
Wayne Brady Taking It Easy
