Actor Woody Harrelson punched a fan in the neck for taking pictures of him and his daughter.

The cops say that a man who appeared to be intoxicated had been taking photos of Harrelson and his daughter. Harrelson then approached the man to tell him to stop and to delete the photos he'd already taken. But the actor claims that the man then lunged at him "in an attempt to grab his neck," according to the report.

 In self-defense, Harrelson punched him in the neck. The allegedly intoxicated man was questioned in his hotel room. Charges are pending, and an investigation is ongoing. The police told NBC that the man's name would be released to the public once he has been officially charged.

Harrelson has three daughters. Two of them are in their 20s while another is in her teens. It has not been shared which daughter was with Harrelson at the time of the attack.
