It looks like Sean Penn’s previously pending paparazzi case is closed almost a year after the incident took place.
Penn plead no contest to vandalism after kicking a photographer in the knee, apparently giving the paparazzo a serious joint injury. The actor got 36 months probation and 300 hours of community service, along with being required to pay an undisclosed sum of money.
Moral of the story: not even Sean Penn can get away with an occasional knee-kick every now and then.
Both sides have signed the required documents and the case is officially closed.
Hollywood justice has been served.
