Comedian and actor T.J. Miller was arrested early Friday morning in Los Angeles after allegedly getting in a physical altercation with a cab driver who supports President-elected Donald Trump.

Star of HBO’s hit show “Silicon Valley,” Miller has become a popular figure in Hollywood. But he’s now in hot water after allegedly assaulting a driver because he spoke out in favor of Trump. The Los Angeles Police Department arrested Miller for battery. (RELATED: Check Out This Fake Tech Ad That Flagrantly Mocks Facebook [VIDEO])

LAPD officer Jenny Houser said the incident was officially recorded as a citizen’s arrest, meaning a civilian took the law enforcement matters into their own hands, according to The Hollywood Reporter. (RELATED: Silicon Valley Loses Its Mind After Trump Wins)

Miller’s net worth is believed to be around $4 million. The median salary for taxi cab drivers in 2014 was $23,210, according to U.S. News & World Report.
