    Gerard Butler has been charged with misdemeanor battery after a minor scuffle with a member of the paparazzi that occurred last fall. The charge against the actor, who became famous as a fearsome battle-ready warrior in 300, was filed at a Hollywood courthouse on Wednesday of this week.

    If convicted, the 39-year-old Butler could face as much as six months in jail. Butler had a run-in with a photographer on October 7 after leaving a premiere party for his film, RocknRolla. According to Butler's lawyer and manager, the actor forced his driver to stop the car after the snapper sped through several red lights and nearly moved down two pedestrians while in pursuit. Butler will not appear in court to face the charge, as it is not required.
