Photographer Jordan Dawes is accusing the actor of battery and has filed a report with police after allegedly being kicked and punched multiple times by Penn.
This isn't the first time Sean Penn's foot has connected with a paparazzo's backside. He served a month in jail in 1987 for kicking the crap out of one pesky cameraman. A few years later he found a photographer lurking in his hotel room and, according to Hollywood legend, dangled the guy by his ankle from a ninth floor balcony!
Penn was also charged with felony domestic assault during his marriage to Madonna, so judging by his violent track record, this latest scuffle is unlikely to be taken lightly by police, meaning that the actor could be facing another stint in jail.
