Actor Josh Brolin and his W co-star Jeffrey Wright will have charges relating to a Louisiana bar brawl last summer (08) dropped after striking a deal with prosecutors.
The two stars joined director Oliver Stone, other castmembers and members of the film crew at the Stray Cat bar in Shreveport in July (08) to celebrate the completion of shooting on the George W. Bush biopic.
But their night was cut short when a fight broke out at the venue, and Brolin and Wright were arrested and showered with pepper spray.
The pair was charged with interfering with a cop during the incident, in which Wright was also tasered.
However, following negotiations between the actors' attorney Blair Berk and the police, the charges will be dropped if they stay out of trouble until 11 March (09).
A settlement hearing was held on Tuesday (06Jan09), although Brolin was not in attendance.
