Actor Gerard Butler has been charged by Los Angeles prosecutors over a scuffle with a photographer.
Butler, 39, best known for starring in the Hollywood war epic 300, faces up to six months in jail if convicted of misdemeanour battery.
Los Angeles City Attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan said the incident happened after a premiere party for the film RocknRolla in October.
Butler's lawyer said the actor will not appear when the case comes to court.
The actor's next big screen release will be this summer's The Ugly Truth, a romantic comedy co-starring Katherine Heigl.
