LOS ANGELES (EFE) .- Johnny Depp reached an agreement by which he will avoid going to trial against the employee of a shoot who accused the actor of assaulting him when he told him that a scene could not be recorded due to lack of permits.
The resolution was registered in the Los Angeles courts, where a trial was scheduled to begin on July 25, although the documents do not offer information on the details of the agreement.
The complaint was filed by Gregg Brooks, a location manager who worked on the set of the movie “City of Lies” and who claims that he was assaulted by Depp on April 13, 2017, when he informed the actor that he only had a last attempt to record a shot at a certain location, as they were not allowed to stay any longer.
According to his version, Depp got angry and started shouting phrases like “Who are you? You have no right to tell me what to do,” after which Brooks spoke with a Los Angeles police officer.
The conversation between the agent and the employee further frustrated Depp, who allegedly punched Brooks in the ribs and had to be restrained by his own bodyguards.
The location manager was reportedly fired a week later after he refused to sign a document saying he would not report Depp for the incident.
According to the agreement, if Depp complies with the agreement, the trial will be annulled. If not, they could schedule a preview for early 2023.
