Johnny Depp Faces Law Suit For Alleged Assault

Johnny Depp Faces Law Suit For Alleged Assault

It seems that renowned actor Johnny Depp lost his cool as he is being sued for punching a crew member twice in the ribs, then offering him $100,000 to punch back while on the set of his upcoming movie "City of Lies" in Los Angeles.

The Location manager Greg "Rocky" Brooks filed a lawsuit recently against Depp and the film's director and producers for unspecified damages.

Brooks said Depp smelled of alcohol and appeared intoxicated as he shouted obscenities then punched him and continued to scream and berate Brooks until Depp's bodyguards removed Depp from the scene.

Brooks suffered humiliation, wrongful termination and physical and mental pain from the incident, the lawsuit says.

It is worth mentioning here, that the alleged incident occurred in April 2017 when the movie was being filmed inside and around the Barclay Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.
