Wendell Pierce of ‘The Wire’ Arrested After Fight Over Bernie Sanders
The bitter Democratic primary has now led to a Hollywood actor’s arrest: Hillary Clinton supporter Wendell Pierce was detained by Atlanta police early Sunday after an alleged assault on two Sanders supporters.

Politics ain’t beanbag but, if press reports are to be believed, a well-known Hollywood actor and producer may have thrown more than a multi-colored children’s toy at a couple in Atlanta. Wendell Pierce, who turned in standout performances for HBO’s The Wire and Treme, was arrested after an altercation early Sunday morning at an Atlanta hotel.

A casual conversation with other two hotel guests reportedly turned tense when the subject of the Democratic presidential primary was broached. The New Orleans native, an ardent supporter of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, allegedly assaulted a woman and her boyfriend at the midtown Loews Hotel around 3:30 a.m. The alleged incident took place in The Lobby, an open bar sandwiched between the guest check-in desk and a restaurant, and a go-to venue for private receptions and after-work cocktails for Atlanta’s business and entertainment class.

The couple, said to be supporters of Bernie Sanders, said Pierce became enraged when the unknown woman declared her support for the Vermont senator. Pierce, who most recently co-starred in the HBO drama Confirmation in the role of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, allegedly pushed a male victim and then “went after his girlfriend… grabbing her hair and smacking her in the head,” according to TMZ.

3. To be honest, this is just as stupid as when people attack Bernie over his supporters...

Getting to be too much crap like this back and forth. Attack the candidate if you want, not some idiot actor who said he's going to vote for her...

5. To be honest, that is precisely why I posted this.

 

I posted this to make that point, that it isn't helpful to whine about each other's supporters,
when there are perfectly good issues out there to be discussed and debated.

6. It's dated the 15th of this month. I hadn't seen it before.

 

So not sure of how to answer your question.

7. Ah, just another rehash of a story that had about 50 OPs

8. Surrogate my ass. You have a gotcha with a Clinton supporter that cannot be argued. Yet... you had

 

to take the extra step to a lie.

12. No, my bad. I've always equated these two

 

surrogate and supporter.

Just checked my dictionary, and saw the former carries the meaning of
"a person deputized for another"

Live & learn.
