One guy at a Hooters in October clearly got the message about Lopez's antipathy for Trump — and managed to "bait" the comedian into getting himself in trouble because of it.
The incident, which took place in mid-October, was caught on video obtained by TMZ. "George Lopez had a terrible time at Hooters, thanks to one giant boob who goaded him into a fight," the outlet reported at the time.
In its follow-up report Friday, TMZ revealed that the encounter has landed Lopez a court date on misdemeanor battery charges.
"Law enforcement sources tell us George will have to appear in court next month on a misdemeanor battery charge for allegedly roughing up a guy who tried filming him at a Hooters in October ... as the comedian was leaving the restaurant," TMZ reports.
