Depardieu 'Admits Drunkenly Smashing Up Car'

Veteran French actor GERARD DEPARDIEU could face a charge of criminal damage after allegedly telling police he drunkenly smashed up a car parked outside his Parisian home.
The Green Card star was reportedly spotted by passersby on Sunday night (20Dec09) "swaying and staggering" in the French capital's Left Bank District while heading towards his luxury townhouse.
Depardieu then allegedly stopped at a vehicle parked outside a nightclub close to his home, and repeatedly kicked the car's doors and smashed the windscreen with a punch. He is then said to have "walked calmly" away from the damage.
According to police sources quoted in the French newspaper Le Parisien, Depardieu has admitted he smashed up the car, but couldn't explain why.
He has been called to face questions at a local police station after Christmas, reports the publication.
If the vehicle's owner files an official complaint, the actor could face a charge of criminal damage and be fined by the courts.
