Prosecutors agreed to drop all charges against Josh Brolin and Jeffrey Wright stemming from an altercation in a Shreveport, Lousiana bar last year provided they each pay $130 in court costs.
Coincidentally, TMZ released the video of the night in question on the same day. This may or may not have been the impetus for the decision to drop the charges.
In the cellphone recorded video, Josh hugs his castmate Jeffrey while cops mace him. They then cuff him and force him to kneel down. At the same time, other police take Jeffrey to the ground, try to cuff him, taser him and try to cuff him again.
This looks pretty bad. The least they could have done was switch it up a little. Like, instead of mace, cuff, taser, cuff. They could have gone taser, cuff, taser, mace, taser, cuff, taser, taser. Afterall, variety is the spice of life.
