Mekhi Phifer appears to have gotten into some money trouble.

Phifer, who's best known for his role as a doctor on ER, filed for bankruptcy on April 22 in California, according to legal documents obtained by E! News.

The Chapter 7 request states Phifer has $67,701 in assets, including $7,000 in household furniture; two 9mm handguns valued at $800; and a 2003 Range Rover.

But the 39-year-old faces $1,268,783 in debts and claims against him including child support, and back taxes owed to the state of California and the IRS.

The documents show Phifer earns $7,500 a month, but he has around $11,600 in monthly expenses.

In addition to co-starring on ER, Phifer had a role opposite Eminem in 8 Mile, and he appeared on the television series House of Lies and Torchwood.
