Woody Harrelson won't face charges in cab incident. The London driver whose taxi the actor allegedly vandalized drops the charges after Harrelson pays for the damages
Never mind. That’s what Scotland Yard is saying about Woody Harrelson’s cab-rage charges, which have been dropped, according to the BBC. The ”Natural Born Killers” star, who allegedly broke an ashtray and a door lock in a London taxi during a late-night ride last month, then fled in another cab and finally on foot before police arrested him, was to face charges in court today. But Les Dartnell, driver of the first taxi, dropped the charges on Friday after Harrelson reimbursed him $800 for damages, the BBC reports.
Harrelson is in London rehearsing for a play, joining such American stars on the West End boards as Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Matt Damon. The play, written by U.S. playwright John Kolvenbach, is called ”On an Average Day.” It costars ”Sex and the City”’s Kyle MacLachlan and opens Aug. 7. Harrelson’s next film project, with Adam Sandler and Jack Nicholson, is the aptly titled ”Anger Management.”
