French actor Gerard Depardieu is facing a legal complaint for assault and battery after recently getting into an altercation with a car driver in Paris, according to an official at the prosecutor’s office.



Depardieu is one of France’s best known actors internationally with more than 100 films under his belt, including the Asterix series, but has increasingly made headlines for the wrong reasons. “There was a confrontation and the driver filed a complaint,” the official said. The actor’s agent was not immediately available for comment.
