FIGHT Club star Edward Norton back up to his old lack of anger management tricks, this time around getting into an altercation with a photographer in New York this week – Sending the paparazzo to hospital!
It was reported Norton, 43, was walking along the street on Tuesday when he was approached by a man brandishing his phone camera.
“I got a quick question: ‘People say you look like me. Is that true?'”, asked snapper Alain Becerra-Calderon. Norton reportedly replied, “Why are you stalking me?” before shoving the camera away.
The photographer, who makes videos on a YouTube channel, then told police Norton had attacked him. He went to hospital, where a doctor said he suffered a “tissue contusion” on his middle finger.
The NYPD is investigating Norton for “harassment,” a source said.
Mr Becerra-Calderon said the exchange was “very, very scary” and the actor “needs to learn to control his temper… I asked if I could ask a question, and he grabbed my phone.” He said his finger was “bruised” and, “the hospital even had to put a bandage on it.”
