Comic-Actor Faizon Love Held without Bail in Domestic Violence Arrest


SEATTLE, Wash. — Comic actor Faizon Love was arrested early Friday morning on suspicion of domestic violence and is currently being held without bond in a Seattle jail.

Love, 42, best known for his roles in such films as, “Friday,” “Elf” and “Couples Retreat” was arrested at 9:07 a.m. on June 11 and is currently being held without bail at the Kings County Jail in Washington.

According to jail records, Love was charged with fourth degree domestic assault- the lowest DV charge on the books.

Love is no stranger to run-ins with the law. In 2009 he was convicted of assault with a deadly weapon in Los Angeles and is currently on probation. This may explain why he is being denied bail.

Radaronline reports Love was scheduled to perform at a comedy club in Seattle this week. He showed up for the first night but not the second. Love is due to take the stage tonight at a sold out show.

The larger than life star began his career as a stand-up comedian before landing his break out role as “Big Worm” in the 1995 Stoner comedy “Friday.”

Love, recently voiced the role of Bruce the Bear in the upcoming Kevin James failure, “Zookeeper,” which is set to open in July.

No further details about the alleged assault were made available to the media. The actor’s attorney had no comment.

A court date has not been set.
