(THE WRAP) — Johnny Depp’s legal entanglements grew by one on Friday, when a man filed suit against the actor, saying that Depp punched him during the filming of a movie last year.
In the suit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, Gregg “Rocky” Brooks says that he was working as a location manager on one of Depp’s films last year when things got ugly during a shoot at the Barclay Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.
According to the suit, permits for the shoot initially allowed for exterior shooting at the hotel until 7 p.m. and inside the hotel until 10 p.m. An extension was granted an extension, and at 10:50 p.m. they were asked to make the current shot the last exterior shot of the night. Brooks says that he was told to instruct Depp of the request, but wanted an on-set LAPD officer to assist him in doing so because he knew Depp “may become upset.” Before he could enlist the officer’s help, however, Brooks’ suit says that Depp accosted Plaintiff and began attacking him, angrily screaming in his face ‘WHO THE F— ARE YOU? YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO TELL ME WHAT TO DO!’”
