Brosnan investigated for assault


Sheriff's officials are investigating Pierce Brosnan in an alleged assault in Malibu last week.

Steve Whitmore, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, said the incident allegedly occurred outside a Mexican restaurant Friday night.

He said the former James Bond star wasn't arrested or detained.

Messages left Tuesday for Brosnan's publicist, Jennifer Allen, weren't immediately returned.

Whitmore identified the alleged victim as Robert Rosen, but declined to give more details because the investigation is ongoing.

Rosen couldn't be reached for comment.
