Gerard Butler Faces Jail Time

Posted: May 15th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Gerard Butler Faces Jail TimeSubmit Comment
We just reported that Vinnie Jones is facing up to a year in jail for assault and now Gerard Butler has been charged with misdemeanor criminal battery in connection to an altercation with a photographer last year. He faces up to six months in jail.

The "300" actor is accused of punching a paparazzo several times in the lip at the Crown Bar in Los Angeles. The incident, which took place on October 7th, followed a premiere party for Butler's "RockNRolla."

Butler's manager, Alan Siegel, said that the actor was forced to have his driver stop the car after a paparazzo repeatedly sped through red lights and almost struck two pedestrians. Butler is due to be arraigned on June 10th.

Well, that paparazo had it coming, the way he was driving he almsot killed two pedestrians, ran red lights and for waht, to get a photo!!! Honeslty these guys are big big sc*m, i think Butler stopped the car and punched him because sooner or later there would be an accident, some one would ahve been killed, and it could have been people in Butlers car, good on him!! i know now that the paprazo will sue Butler, so Butler, his driver, people in the car with him and the pedestrians should all sue the paparazo for all he has!!

...which won't be much. But yeah... this chase is how Lady Diana was killed. So good on Butler (I would have done the same - or rather just had my driver lock up the brakes - I've done that before... lol... it works!)

good.maybe it will give him some time to think about all the crappy movies he's done since '300' and when he's out he'll undertand he needs to another '300' movie where he slashes people.

Paparazzi's are able to get away with so much it's total bs. Moral of the story: become a paparazzi and you can get away with a boat load of crimes.

And they're tougher (more disrespectful) of the female actors. I forgot who this happened to... but the paparazzi were physically blocking the security gate to her driveway. Let me tell you how I'd play that one out. First: I'd say f*ck DiCaprio and his Prius (no disrespect to Leonardo)... Al Gore and global warming! 2. Buy a REAL Hummer (HumVee) - military class... replace the bumpers with construction grade I-beams... and I'd push that motherf*ckers car right though my gate, then I'd charge him for my endangerment (I was acting in self-defense - reasonable force... I was out-numbered)... and charge him with trespassing, the whole 9 yards. Something like that. Or just get his name and have his pets set on fire.

That paparazzi should get punched again and harder and harder until justice is done. I sound awful, but it's just what should happen. Bad people deserve to be punished, not paid for wronging what was right.

Oh, but messing with his pets is low. It's not their fault. Set his body on fire, I can consider that. Leave him paraplegic, also... But the pets, maybe give them to someone else who could take care of them, at most.

Gerard Butler does not need a new movie role - he needs to enter long-term anger management. What is upsetting is that too many celebrities think that they are above the law. If the average Joe did that he would have been dragged off to jail that night. Remember O.J. If the police had treated him correctly after he punched his wife the "first" time, two innocent people would not have had their throats slashed. Wake Up People! The Same Laws Should Apply to All People!

im sorry...but some jackass who straps on a camera and harrases actors is not a newsperson...most of these f*cks deserve to have the sh*t kicked out of them, as they are nothing more than leaches looking to make a quick buck...he should ask for a jury trial..he will get off
