The Shreveport Times report that the victim said he was walking to cash out when "We kind of met right there in the middle and I recognized him," said the man, who asked to not be identified. "I said 'Oh, Mike Epps!'" That's when he claims Mike Epps and the other man attacked him leaving him bruised and bleeding from the face. Epps was released on a $1,000 bond.
