Student Juan Carlos Montenegro claims the pint-sized actor hit him, after he took a picture in a Boca Raton, Florida, shopping mall—and he has reported the incident to police.
But the authorities say they can't be sure if it actually was Pesci who lashed out at Montenegro, and won't be bringing charges against him.
Local shopkeepers back up Montenegro's claims, telling police Pesci visited the shopping centre on the day of the incident.
But despite reporting the incident to police, the 24-year-old student has no plans to pursue the matter.
He says, "I may have got Joe on a bad day."
