Scottish actor Gerard Butler is in the clear following his 2008 bust-up with a paparazzo - a California judge has dismissed a misdemeanor battery charge against him.
The Los Angeles City Attorney filed the charge against Butler in May (09) after investigating claims the 300 star attacked a snapper outside the premiere party for Guy Ritchie film RocknRolla on 7 October 2008. The actor's representatives insisted the photographer was stalking the star, almost killing a pedestrian as he chased the Scot through Hollywood.
The charge was dismissed at a hearing on Tuesday (05Jan10) after the actor completed community service. Butler faced up to six months in jail if convicted. (JMA/WNWCZM/KL)
