2006 | Martin Lawrence wants to 'fight the establishment'( Jon Farmer / Los Angeles Times )
With a pistol in his pocket, comedian Martin Lawrence ran into traffic on busy Ventura Boulevard in Sherman Oaks on May 8, 2006, cursing and screaming at oncoming cars until he was taken away by police and hospitalized, authorities and witnesses said.
A witness said Lawrence was cursing, waving his hands and yelling, "Fight the establishment!" The actor tried to fight off the police when they attempted to restrain him, the witness said.
Police said Lawrence may have had a seizure because he failed to take a prescribed medication, but Lawrence's publicist said the actor was "suffering from a case of complete exhaustion and dehydration."
