June 23, 2008: "Woody Harrelson Sued Again By Photographer For Assault"
Woody Harrelson is being sued again by the same photographer who filed a lawsuit against him for assault last year.
According to the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, photographer Josh Levine claims that Woody Harrelson injured him physically and emotionally when he assaulted him two years ago outside a Hollywood hotspot.
Levine, who was working for TMZ in June 2006, called out to Woody Harrelson to get his attention near the intersection of Las Palmas Avenue and Hollywood Boulevard.
Woody Harrelson apparently broke his camera, choked the paparazzo, and shoved the camera into his ribs.
The injured shutterbug is seeking $2.5 million in damages. He is also including one of the actor's bodyguards, who was allegedly ordered to attack him.
Levine had originally sued Woody Harrelson last year but he dropped his case in January.
