Charged with Crime

5/14/2009 7:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Gerard Butler has another notch on his belt, but this time it ain't a chick ...he's scored a criminal charge.
Gerard Butler
Butler has been charged with misdemeanor criminal battery in connection with a run-in with a photog on October 7, 2008. At 2 AM, after a premiere party for "RockNRolla," Butler left Crown Bar in a limo and allegedly popped a papper in the lips three or four times. The L.A. City Attorney filed the charge yesterday.

Butler's reps have said the papper had stalked the star, and chased people through the streets. The rep claims the papper almost killed a pedestrian.

If convicted, Butler could face up to 6 months in jail.

Butler is due in court for an arraignment on June 10.

Butler's lawyer, Blair Berk, declined comment.

Someone stated "MAYBE THEY SHOULD STAY OUT OF HIS BUSINESS AND LEAVE HIM ALONE" - well, if he wants to be left alone then maybe he shouldn't be in 'THE BUSINESS".

This idiot just has one of those faces that seem to invite people to punch it. I feel like punching it just by looking at it. Not for any particular reason except that he has a very punchable looking face. The pap that is.
Gerry has a nice face.

I am glad Gerry hit the stupid **** - who the f*** does this c**t think he is, pissing people off on purpose to get them in crap so they have a story for their piece of s*** magazine. Get a f***ing life and a real job! Pap s***! He didn't hit you hard enough. If I see you in the street, I'll remember not to break! Gerry is the best and you are the s*** of the earth flashing your little boo-boo for the camera. If Gerry was guilty of your bogus charges, YOU WOULDNT BE ABLE TO F-ING WALK YOU INBRED MORON! BTW @camaguey go and get an IQ you total waste of space!
