Edward Norton Gets Into Fight With Photographer

Edward Norton recently got into a small fight with an amateur photographer on Tuesday.

The actor was approached on the streets of New York by Alain Becerra-Calderon, a man who makes videos on YouTube. The problem started when the photographer asked Norton a question.

“I got a quick question. People say you look like me. Is that true?” the man asked.

Edward Norton responded with: “Why are you stalking me?” It was around this time that the Fight Club star shoved Becerra-Calderon’s camera phone away.

Alain later reported the so-called fight to police. He explained to authorities that he was forced to pay a visit to Beth Israel Hospital after the altercation took place. The photographer added that Norton’s behavior has caused a “tissue contusion” on his middle finger.

Since the incident was reported to police, officers decided to launch an investigation. However, the case was ultimately closed since authorities did not witness the exchange. The matter was referred to civil court.

“He went to the hospital claiming hand pain. It was classified as harassment,” a police spokesperson explained to E! Online.

Becerra-Calderon described his fight with Edward Norton as “very, very scary.” He said that the actor should “learn to control his temper.”

The photographer added, “I asked if I could ask a question, and he grabbed my phone.”

Although the matter has been referred to civil court, it’s unknown if the amateur photographer has filed a lawsuit against the actor. None of Norton’s representatives have commented on the scuffle as of this writing.

Edward Norton is currently filming Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s the comedy Birdman in New York City. The film also stars Emma Stone, Michael Keaton, Naomi Watts, and Zach Galifianakis. The actor recently completely production on Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel.
