Sources at Loews Hotel claim the actor started a conversation with a woman and her boyfriend at around 3:30am. Allegedly, the convo escalated into a political debate, when the woman Wendell was speaking with identified herself as a big Bernie Sanders supporter, according to TMZ.
Wendell, who is reportedly a devout Hillary fan, allegedly “became enraged, pushed the boyfriend and then went after his girlfriend…grabbing her hair and smacking her in the head,” the site explains.
