LONDON - It seems Russell Brand won’t face charges over a spat with a photographer at Los Angeles International Airport.
US prosecutors are unlikely to file charges against the comedian, who married Katy Perry at a lavish ceremony in India last month.
Brand was arrested at the airport in September while travelling with Perry, and had been facing a potential charge of misdemeanor simple battery, reports the Telegraph.
The incident was captured on video while Brand and Perry were swarmed by paparazzi as they entered a Delta Air Lines terminal. On the video, Brand is seen swatting at a photographer and hitting his camera.
City prosecutors charged Kanye West with misdemeanor battery, vandalism and grand theft for breaking a photographer’s flash in September 2008.
However, the case was later dismissed after the rapper reached a civil settlement and attended anger management classes. (ANI)
