Woody Harrelson claims he acted in self-defense on Wednesday when he was approached by a man who would not stop taking pictures of him.
An incident report obtained by Fox News shows that police officers from the Metropolitan Police Department on Wednesday night responded to the Watergate Hotel in Washington DC for an alleged simple assault incident involving Harrelson, 60.
According to the report, Harrelson informed police that he got into a verbal altercation with a man who “sank against” him in an attempt to “grab his neck”. Harrelson then claimed to police that he punched the alleged aggressor in the neck “in defense of himself.”

The incident report does not state the cause of the altercation. However, NBC 4 reports that Harrelson beat the man because he would not stop taking pictures of him and his daughter.
