LONDON – Hugh Grant has been arrested for allegedly throwing a container of baked beans at a photographer, London police said.
The Metropolitan Police don't identify suspects who haven't been charged, but said a 46-year-old man was arrested Wednesday night on suspicion of assault and released on bail. No charges have been filed, police said.
Grant's lawyers weren't immediately available for comment.
Photographer Ian Whittaker told the Daily Star tabloid that Grant had kicked him and shouted abuse before hurling the beans at him Tuesday morning.
The newspaper ran photos Wednesday showing the actor holding a plastic tub over his head.
Grant's screen credits include "Four Weddings and a Funeral," "Notting Hill" and "About a Boy."
