'Hangover' Star in Detroit Rumble -- Caught on Tape

12/6/2010 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mike Epps unleashed a fist of fury last weekend ... socking a photographer who was allegedly harassing the comedian during a party for Mike's wife -- and a HUGE brawl broke out!!!

Mike Epps Fight Video
It all went down at the Key Club in Detroit last Saturday (11/27) -- Epps tells us the photog was talking trash to him and his wife while filming them inside the restaurant ... and Day-Day snapped.

Epps -- who played the "wrong Doug" in "The Hangover" -- can be seen throwing one haymaker as security instantly swarmed in to break up the melee.

Epps tells TMZ, "It was a private celebration for my wife's birthday. I asked the photographer numerous times not to film, but he refused to let up. I then attempted to retrieve the tape from the camera."

Attempts to reach the photographer -- who was escorted out of the restaurant post-beatdown -- were unsuccessful.

lmao...the Photog should've sat closer to the exit cause as you can see, he gets a good beatdown from where he was sitting all the way to the exit. Now that's a helluva asswhippin on his way out!

If his side of the story is correct why didn't he just ask the restaurant manager to kick out the photographer? It was private property so the restaurant had that authority. My guess is that Epps got pissed off almost immediately and lost it.

You racists show just how cowardly you really are. If some dude was talking trash about your woman, you'd sit there and take it.Then the next time you get into a fight, she'll bring up the fact that you're a punk and then when you get that make-up sex, you're tasting yours buddies meat and don't even know it HA HA!

A few comments are definitely out of line, as far as ethnicity or race. It has nothing to do with a person’s skin color, but more so their attitude. So comments about locking the animals (black celebs) up must be from a person that is ignorant. If I'm correct many celebs black and white, have been caught doing something stupid and/or illegal… from Ben Roethlisberger (sexually assault), Charlie Sheen (drugs, solicitation of a prostitute ,assault of said prostitute and destruction of hotel property), DMX (drugs, resisting arrest) to Wesley Snipes (tax evasion). So your celebrity animals that need to be locked up or caged can be any color if you want to be fair.
