The incident, which occurred on May 6, is just being reported. according to a police report obtained by CBS Philadelphia, White Marsh Township police were called to Howard's home after his ex, 39-year-old May Seng Yang showed up and allegedly started a verbal spat with the actor's current girlfriend around 11 p.m. Howard claims he walked to the gate and opened it to try to calm the situation down, when Yang reportedly attacked him, hitting him in the face.
