"Curb Your Enthusiasm" star Jeff Garlin won't face vandalism charges after allegedly smashing the windows of a Mercedes on Saturday, TMZ has learned -- but he will get a stern talking to.
We broke the story ... Garlin was popped for felony vandalism in Studio City, CA following the incident, when he allegedly flew off the handle while arguing with a female Mercedes driver over a parking spot ... breaking the woman's side window with his bare hand (impressive).
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Garlin will NOT face criminal charges ... he will instead have to sit for a meeting with the L.A. City Attorney, who will lecture him about the incident as well as vandalism laws.
Garlin's not completely off the hook ... if he doesn't behave, the L.A. City Attorney can still file criminal charges. Plus, the driver of the Mercedes is still free to go after Garlin for the damages in civil court.
