Law cleared of snapper assault

16 September 2009

Jude Law has been cleared over claims he assaulted a female snapper earlier this year.

The British actor was accused of hitting the photographer after he left a London restaurant in July.

Law, who insisted that he "had no intention to assault anyone", was cleared following photographic evidence and witness statements.

His spokesman said, "It is highly likely that a court would decide his actions were reasonable given that his path was deliberately impeded by a crowd of photographers.

"Accordingly, there is insufficient evidence to charge him with any offence."
