Faizon Love has pleaded not guilty to assault charges after he allegedly got into an altercation at an Ohio airport.

On Wednesday, the 48-year-old actor and comedian — probably best known for his role in the hit Christmas film “Elf” — entered the plea of not guilty to misdemeanor charges in Franklin County Municipal Courtroom after he allegedly threw a 24-year-old valet at John Glenn Columbus International Airport to the ground, according to Page Six.
