"America's Next Top Model" judge Rob Evans has been issued an arrest warrant for battery and assault. The supermodel, who has been linked to his boss and host of "ANTM" Tyra Banks, is wanted in connection with an assault at the Next Modeling agency.
Lt. Lincoln Hoshino told ABCNews.com confirmed that the warrant had been issued for Evans' arrest after an incident on March 14. The warrant charges Evans with "battery with serious injury and assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury."
So far, Evans has not been in contact with the police regarding the warrant, which does not bode well for the reality TV star. Hoshino also said that police are currently keeping an eye on Evans' movements and believe he could be in New York.
Should Evans be taken into custody, he will have to produce $150,000 for bail.
Evans is a British supermodel who took over for Nigel Barker on "ANTM" after a complete sweep was made of the "ANTM" cast. The news came as a shock to fans loyal to the series who had grown accustomed to Barker, Mr. and Miss Jay and several guest stars for the show.
Banks, however, announced that all three had been let go via Twitter, stunning fans. Since then, the show has brought on board public relations specialist Kelly Cutrone, Evans, and Johnny Wujeck. The show has also adapted a new format, with viewers being able to determine who goes and who stays in the competition.
This year marks the youngest cast ever, with college girls competing for a modeling contract and much more. Next season, Banks announced, will be the first to feature male models in the competition. It will be the 20th cycle of the modeling show produced and created by Banks.
