British comedian Russell Brand may get relief from charges over an alleged scuffle with a photographer in the US.
The ‘Get Him To The Greek’ star can evade charges, if he attends a court hearing along with the paparazzo Nov 19, to receive a reprimand from a judge.
L.A. City Attorney’s Office spokesman Frank Mateljan said, ‘This is the only action as of now. Based on the info (information), it has been determined that this is the most appropriate action at this time.’
The comic was detained by police at Los Angeles International Airport last month following an alleged clash with a photographer. He was charged with battery and released on $21,000 bail, reports dailystar.co.uk.
Brand insisted he was defending fiancee Katy Perry from an over-zealous snapper but American immigration officials revealed they were investigating the situation and could revoke his visa over the incident.
