Jude Law Will NOT Be Charged In Assault

Jude Law has been cleared of assaulting a paparazzi photographer, PEOPLE has revealed. The actor was arrested September 4 after allegedly assaulting a photographer outside his home in north-west London. He was taken to a central London police station, interviewed and later released on non-monetary police bail. The case was forwarded to the state prosecutors – the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) – for deliberation. "The police have told me that they and the CPS have examined the photographer's allegation extremely carefully and made the decision that there is no further action to be taken," Jude told PEOPLE.

Scotland Yard originally required Jude to return to a police station but it now confirms that no charges will be filed against the double Oscar nominee. "No further action will be taken and he will not be required to return on bail," a police spokeswoman told PEOPLE. Jude has recently been promoting his latest film, Sleuth and is now filming futuristic drama Repossession Mambo in Canada. "Of course I am delighted to be vindicated," Jude told PEOPLE of his clean status.
