Sean Penn Might Go to Jail

A California court charged Sean Penn with battery and vandalism yesterday for going to town on a photographer last fall. A spokesman for the L.A. city attorney's office said Penn is being charged for kicking the photographer and breaking his camera. If convicted for the misdemeanor charges, Penn faces eighteen months in jail. This isn't Penn's first time going after the paparazzi and it wouldn't be his first time to go to jail for it, but this does seem to be the first time Penn has used his feet instead of his fists. That's progress, right? [LAT]
