So Who Started That Louisiana Bar Brawl?
Looks like Josh Brolin and other cast and crew of the movie "W" weren't as rowdy as initial reports led us to believe. While no one is disputing that lighting tech Eric Felland got tossed from the bar, cell phone video taken at the scene reportedly shows cops using pepper spray on Brolin and fellow actor Jeffrey Wright.
When that didn't subdue them, a Taser was used on Wright, police admitted. But TMZ is reporting that racial slurs were also directed at the actor, who is black.
The city attorney plans to file charges against the actors for interfering with police officers, though a final decision on that hasn't been reached. We already knew that Shreveport was making a play to become the Hollywood of the South, but we didn't expect heavy-handed police tactics to be one of the ways the town would channel LA.
