Sean Penn To Be Charged With Battery, Prosecutor Says
KWTX ^

Posted on 02/19/2010 12:58:55 PM PST by jakerobins

LOS ANGELES (February 19, 2010)—The Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office says actor Sean Penn faces battery and vandalism charges stemming from an altercation with a photographer in Brentwood last fall.

Spokesman Frank Mateljan said the two misdemeanor counts would probably be filed later Friday.

A phone message left for Penn's attorney, Barry Hirsch, was not immediately returned.

Mateljan said Penn kicked a photographer during a dustup in October in which the photographer's camera was damaged.

If convicted, Penn could face as much as 18 months in jail.

Sean, you’re not an edgy Young Turk anymore. You’re a mean old man.

He should be charged with impersonating a human being.

If convicted, Penn could face as much as 18 months in jail.

But he still won't lose his CA CCW.

Good thing this didn't happen while Sean Penn was allegedly "helping" down in New Orleans or this tempermental jerk might have blasted someone!

He won't serve any kind of time in jail. He isn't one of the "little people" who pay to see his movies.

Better investigate murders in his vicinity too. He says he knows what its like to kill a man because he’s done it himself in movies.

I would love to see Penn do jail time. He can relate as he has been in jail in the movie Bad Boys. He can look at it as a learning experience. Hollywood people need to do the time just as any other person would have to IMO.
