Gerard ButlerGerard Butler is in the clear over that whole dust-up he had with a photog back in 2008.

A judge dismissed a misdemeanor battery charge today. Butler got into it with a pap after a premiere party in October 2008. Butler had claimed the photog had followed him around all night.

He could have gotten six months in jail if convicted.

Gotta love Gerard. He takes no crap off of the slimy paps. Those little paps are having a tough time in LA right now....it's time to kick them in the 'nads...hard.

I-town- now you're getting the picture!!! Very observant of you!!!!

TMZ - interesting how you choose to state what he COULD have gotten. Wonder what the pap COULD have gotten - ya didn't mention that. Course birds of a feather........

But wait...I thought a judge dismissed the dog problem...when Lolita was attacked by this huge dog while walking in New York and Gerard slammed the bigger dogs face againsts a fence...was he dismissed from both charges? "Dog Wars" and "Pap Scuffle"?

Well, if not a publicity stunt, maybe he had enough? I wish him well, he is fortunate that the man did not die.
