Brosnan cleared in scuffle with photog


Pierce Brosnan won't face criminal charges over accusations that he struck a celebrity photographer in October, Los Angeles prosecutors said Tuesday.

"After a complete review of the investigation done by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, there is insufficient evidence to prove this case to a jury beyond a reasonable doubt," Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney James Garrison said in court papers.

Sheriff's officials had said they were investigating Brosnan, 54, star of such Bond films as "The World is Not Enough" and "Die Another Day" over allegations he had committed battery.

Authorities declined to give more details, but the celebrity Web site reported he had been accused of scuffling with a photographer outside a Mexican restaurant in Malibu.
