Wayne Brady involved in accident, argument with suspected drunk driver

MALIBU, Calif. (KABC) — Entertainer Wayne Brady was involved in a car accident and fight in Malibu with a man who was later arrested for drunken driving, authorities say.

Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies say the incident began when a man backed into Brady’s vehicle in the 21200 block of Pacific Coast Highway Sunday evening.

The two drivers began exchanging information, but when the other driver heard sirens, he tried to run away on foot, according to the sheriff’s statement. Brady tried to stop him from escaping and a fight ensued, officials say.

Anyone who witnessed the confrontation or has additional information is asked to call the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station at (818)878-1808.
