Actor and 30 Seconds To Mars frontman Jared Leto was questioned by police on Tuesday afternoon after the Dallas Buyer’s Club star was involved in a scuffle at LAX. According to TMZ, a paparazzi was said to be harassing Leto, his brother Shannon, and his friend when the star’s buddy became agitated with the photographer and hit him in the face, E! News reported. The photographer reportedly had a split lip from the incident.
“Police received a phone call reporting a battery in progress, no arrests have been made. “At 16:53 hours we received a call for a battery in progress,” LAX police stated. “Officers responded to Terminal 2 and conducted an investigation. Upon completion, officers determined that no battery took place.”
The 43-year-old Leto was questioned by police officers when he and his friends were about to get into a car to depart LAX. Charges were not filed against either party following the brief airport scuffle. The photographer and Leto’s unknown friend did resolve their differences before shaking hands and going on their way.
