Academy Award-winning actor Joe Pesci has been questioned by police over an alleged violent altercation with a fan last month.

The Hollywood hardman is being investigated after claims by 24-year-old student Juan Carlos Montenegro that Pesci punched him in the face after being snapped in a shopping center car park in Boca Raton, Florida.

A police spokesman confirmed the 62-year-old actor has been questioned about the incident, while his companion Garry Serino, who was with Pesci at the time, has also given police a statement.

But the spokesman warned, "There are two sides to every story."

Palm Beach County prosecutors will study the results of the investigation to decide whether the Goodfellas star should be charged with misdemeanor battery.
