Woody Harrelson has been sued for $2.5 million by a paparazzo who accused the actor of assaulting him and breaking his video camera two years ago.
According to a lawsuit filed Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court, Josh Levine was filming Harrelson in Hollywood late one night in June 2006. He alleges the Academy Award-nominated actor choked him, broke his video camera and ordered his bodyguard to attack him.
Levine’s suit says he still has mental, physical and emotional pain from the encounter. He is also suing the unidentified bodyguard.
Harrelson’s publicist could not immediately be reached for comment.
