No Charges Against Russell Brand's Guards in India

October 25, 2010 (3:22 am) GMT
A day before the nuptials took place on Saturday, October 23, the actor's bodyguards who had a scuffle with local photographers resolved the matter by apologizing.

Newly-married funnyman won't have to be questioned by cops after all - assault charges stemming from an alleged altercation between his security guards and photographers have been dropped.

Just days before the British comic married singer in an Indian ceremony on Saturday, October 23 paparazzi photographers clashed with minders during a safari trip. Snappers claimed a member of the actor's entourage approached their vehicle, punched the driver in the face and stole his car keys.

A statement from Ranthambhore police read, "The photographers have filed an official complaint of assault and all witnesses, including Mr. Brand, will be questioned about this." But the security staff involved have reportedly attended a local police station, apologized to the photographers and all charges have been dropped.
