Wayne Brady has reportedly been involved in a car accident that turned into a physical fight.

According to TMZ, Brady’s car was hit by a drunk driver in Los Angeles on Sunday night (Nov. 19), where things got heated between the two shortly after.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff Department also confirmed to PEOPLE that the drivers allegedly “got into an intense argument” that turned into an actual fight when they pulled over to exchange information.

“Wayne is so upset about this incident with a drunk driver,” a source told the publication. “As a father, he was just thankful it was not his daughter or anyone’s child dealing with this. He kept thinking what if it was his daughter.”
