Katy Perry London, Nov 21 (IANS) British comedian Russell Brand has escaped punishment for allegedly assaulting a photographer during an airport clash in September.

The “Get Him to the Greek” star was arrested and charged with assault and battery after the run-in with an over-zealous photographer at the Los Angeles International Airport, where he and his then-fiancee Katy Perry were due to board a flight.

Brand insisted he was defending the honour of Perry, now his wife, as the paparazzo reportedly attempted to take a picture up her skirt, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

“Mr. Brand and his lawyer attended a hearing. Following that meeting, we do not anticipate any further action will be necessary regarding this matter,” said Los Angeles City Attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan.
