Rob Evans might be posing for a different type of photo soon.

The British model—and seemingly studly new addition to the America's Next Top Model judging panel—is a suspect in an assault and battery case and a warrant is currently out for his arrest, the Beverly Hills Police Department confirmed Wednesday to E! News.

Police say that Evans, who is wanted in connection with an incident that allegedly went down in March, had been in touch but has since ceased communicating with them and they are "actively" looking for him.

Contrary to another report, however, the police say they have not dispatched a special fugitive team to find Evans.

The former boxer is facing a charge apiece of battery with serious injury and assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury. Bail attached to the warrant was set at $150,000.

A rep for Evans had no comment.

The new addition to America's Next Top Model was reportedly romantically linked to host Tyra Banks, but a show source tells E! News they were "friends with benefits. Nothing serious, but Tyra liked the rumor being out there that they are together."

In July, Banks gushed to E! News about Evans, saying, "Oh my god he's fine. I'm very nervous around him."
