Actor Jude Law arrested for allegedly assaulting a photographer
Jude Law has been arrested for allegedly assaulting a paparazzi photographer outside his Maida Vale home.
The snapper was said to have suffered minor injuries after Jude became incensed and tried to grab his camera.
The 34-year-old actor voluntarily visited the Maida Vale police station later that day, where he was held on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm, which he denies.
He was reportedly fingerprinted and bailed to return next month.
A police spokesperson said: ‘The arrest followed an allegation of assault yesterday at a residential address in Maida Vale.
‘The 34-year-old man was released on bail to a date in October pending further inquiries.’
Jude, who’s just returned from the Venice Film Festival after promoting his new film Sleuth, is never far from the headlines – but it’s usually his love life that that lands him in hot water.
In a statement earlier today, Jude’s lawyer said: ‘I can confirm that Jude Law voluntarily attended Marylebone Police Station yesterday following an alleged incident outside his house earlier in the day.
‘Mr Law provided the police with a statement regarding his denials of allegations by a ‘paparazzi’ photographer against him and made his own allegations concerning the photographer.
‘Jude has the utmost respect for the police and whilst this is an ongoing matter no further comment will be made.’
