James Bond star Pierce Brosnan won't be charged for getting into a scuffle with a photographer on Oct. 26 outside a Mexican restaurant in Malibu, California, reports said Wednesday.
Brosnan, who was accompanied by one of his children, took exception to being questioned by the photographer, identified as Robert Rosen. Witnesses reportedly alleged Brosnan reacted by swearing at Rosen and punching him in the ribs before the photographer responded by kicking the actor in the stomach.
The Los Angeles County sheriff's department investigated the matter. However after reviewing evidence, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office said Tuesday no criminal charges would be filed against the actor, according to Deputy District Attorney James Garrison.
Brosnan's spokeswoman Jennifer Allen said she had not heard about the decision, adding she would try to reach Brosnan's attorney to see if he had any comment.
Brosnan, Irish-born, 54, who played British superspy 007 in four films and "Remington Steele" was never arrested.
