Mike Epps punched a photographer who was allegedly harassing the comedian during a romantic dinner with his wife.

Epps snapped last weekend at the Key Club in Detroit. He says the photogrpaher was talking trash to him and wife while filming them inside the restaurant.

Epps says:

"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."
