Wayne Brady reportedly got into a fight with the driver of a car who ran into his vehicle in Malibu on Sunday night.
Sources told the outlet that Wayne and the other driver, a 51-year-old man, pulled over on the highway immediately after the accident, got out of their cars and an ‘intense argument’ followed, escalating into a fight.
Police said the comedian called 911 following the fight with the driver, who had jumped back into his car and ‘took off down PCH.’
The driver was reportedly tracked down by authorities and arrested for ‘battery, DUI and hit-and-run’.
The outlet also reported the fire department arrived after the other driver had left the scene.
Wayne reportedly did not need medical attention at the time.
However, an insider told TMZ that the star was ‘banged up and sore the day after the incident’ and will be ‘taking it easy’.
The accident comes almost two months after Wayne said he felt ‘dishonest’ before coming out as pansexual.
‘I think that’s the piece that was missing, that I couldn’t verbalize, ’cause I couldn’t lock on to it,’ he told Entertainment Tonight. ‘I always felt this much dishonest, and if I was being dishonest, then there’s no way to truly give yourself 100 percent.’
The Let’s Make a Deal host — who shares daughter Maile, 20, with ex-wife Mandie Taketa, 47 — considered that he was possibly bisexual but expressed that he later began to identify as pansexual because, to him, ‘pan means being able to be attracted to anyone who identifies as gay, straight, bi, transsexual or non-binary.’
‘And, I think, at least for me for right now, that is the proper place. I took pan to mean that not only can I be attracted to any of these people or types physically, but I could be attracted to the person that is there,’ the comedian told People magazine.
Wayne revealed that he has done ‘all the therapy I could do,’ such as being ‘treated for love addiction. It’s a part of my journey. I had to start examining why I was looking for myself and happiness in a slew of people.’
Following the tragic passing of actor Robin Williams nearly 10 years ago in 2014, the star stated that he ‘got involved in certain groups, like Glenn Close’s group, Bring Change To Mind, being very vocal about mental health.’
‘And not just the buzzword of mental health, but really what do I have to do to function in this big world and still be okay with yourself and more importantly, to love yourself so that you don’t hurt yourself?’
Prior to his coming out, Brady was married twice, and his first marriage to Diana Lasso lasted from 1993 until 1995.
The performer eventually tied the knot with Mandie Taketa in 1993, and they welcomed a daughter named Maile, 20, in 2003.
Although the former couple separated in 2006 and divorced the following year, they have remained on friendly terms ever since their split.
The comedian’s second wife and child were vocal about their support for him after he came out as pansexual.
