Hugh Grant arrested for assault

According to British paper the Daily Star, Hugh Grant was arrested for allegedly throwing baked beans at a photographer. Ian Whittaker told the paper he was on the street near Grant’s home when he asked to take a picture: “It looked like he had been out for a morning jog. I asked him if he would give me a smile because he was standing with his head down. But he must have been having a bad hair day because he started chasing me down the street. He gave me a couple of kicks in the legs and I think he kneed me.” It was then that Grant picked up a plastic container of beans and flung it at the man. Grant is expected in court in May to face charges.

    I don’t blame Hugh Grant one little bit. Imagine if you couldn’t even go for a job without being hounded. Those photographers are unrelenting and deserve to get some backlash! Let them be thankful it was only a plastic container of beans!

    Hugh Grant goes jogging with baked beans? How bizarre!

    It’s sad that celebrities feel so hounded that they get upset when people simply want to take their picture. Mind you, maybe, after a sweaty jog, that’s not the best question to ask …
    Guess, they both ended up having a REAL bad day!
