Actor Wendell Pierce was involved in a political debate at an Atlanta hotel over the weekend that led to a simple battery charge after the Atlanta Police Department said Pierce hit someone.
According to CNN, a police report says the woman who alleged the assault told authorities Pierce pushed her, hit her in the head and ripped off the hood of her sweatshirt as he followed her to her room and tried to force himself in.
But why did this all happen? The Daily Beast claims the argument started over disagreeing viewpoints of Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton. The actor is less likely to "Feel the Bern" as he is a well-known supporter of Clinton.
