Hugh Grant arrested for alleged baked-bean assault
By JERUSALEM POST STAFF
Police in London have arrested actor Hugh Grant after he allegedly threw a container of baked beans at a photographer.
Photographer Ian Whittaker told the Daily Star tabloid that the "Four Weddings and a Funeral" actor, 46, had kicked him and shouted abuse before hurling the beans at him on Tuesday morning. The newspaper ran photos Wednesday showing Grant holding a plastic tub over his head.
The Metropolitan Police does not identify suspects who have not been charged, but said a 46-year-old man was arrested Wednesday night on suspicion of assault and released on bail. No charges had been laid, police said.
Grant's lawyers were not immediately available for comment.
