Joe Pesci Escapes Charges over Alleged Assault

Academy Award-winning actor Joe Pesci will not be charged over an alleged violent altercation with a fan last month, according to police.

The Hollywood hardman was accused of punching 24-year-old student Juan Carlos Montenegro in the face after being photographed in a shopping centre car park in Boca Raton, Florida.

But prosecutors say that with no witnesses there is too little evidence to bring a case against the star.

Assistant state attorney Jill Estey Richstone says, “The investigating officer was unable to determine who the primary aggressor was and there are no independent witnesses to the incident.”
