Ledger Escape Charges After Photographer 'Brawl'

Australian heart-throb HEATH LEDGER has escaped charges after allegedly tackling a photographer on the set of his latest film CANDY.

THE PATRIOT star, 26, reportedly jumped on paparazzo GUY FINLAY on the Sydney set of the romantic drama, on Friday night (06MAY05), according to local newspaper THE DAILY TELEGRAPH.

Finlay claims Ledger "violently assaulted" him from behind, but police haven't pressed charges due to lack of witnesses.

The snapper, who has a sore elbow and calf muscle, has vowed to "take it all the way" if he can find an independent witness to back up his allegations.

Ledger has recently been the topic of tabloid speculation he is about to become a father after his girlfriend, DAWSON'S CREEK actress MICHELLE WILLIAMS was spotted wearing baggy clothes and visiting pre-natal yoga classes in Sydney.

Ledger and Williams are due to return to the actress' native America this week (ends13MAY05), where the hunk is set to begin filming the biopic of surfer GREG NOLL.
