The new judge on "America's Next Top Model" is a wanted man ... after allegedly beating the holy hell out of another person in Beverly Hills back in March -- law enforcement sources tell TMZ.
According to law enforcement sources, Rob Evans -- a former boxer -- is accused of beating the other guy up so bad, the victim ended up in the hospital with serious injuries. We're told Rob's boxer past is part of the reason he's wanted for felony assault with a deadly weapon.
We're told the warrant was issued for Evans' arrest soon after the incident, but Evans cooperated with police from the get go -- so they didn't need to track him down.
But that all changed in recent weeks, when cops say Evans suddenly went silent -- and stopped speaking to them.
We're told the Beverly Hills PD now views Evans as a fugitive -- and have dispatched a special fugitive team to track Evans down. Once found, he will be arrested on the spot.
Attempts to reach Evans were not successful.
