Johnny Depp sued for allegedly punching crew member
10 July 2018, 05:59 | Max Haynes
Actor Johnny Depp is being sued for allegedly punching a location manager who was trying to enforce permit restrictions on the set of upcoming crime film City of Lies.
Brooks claims Depp hired two of his friends for a scene in downtown L.A. on April 13, 2017.
The lawsuit says Furman forced Brooks to go beyond his duties and tell Depp himself that shooting had to end.
Gregg "Rocky" Brooks filed suit against Depp on July 6 accusing the actor of "inflicting emotional distress", according to the Los Angeles County court docket viewed by Page Six on Monday. Before the officer could arrive on the scene, Brooks alleges that Depp punched him in the midsection then screamed, "I'll give you $100K to punch me in the face right now".
According to the complaint, Depp also "angrily and forcefully punched Plaintiff twice in the lower left side of his rib cage and causing pain". "You have no right to tell me what to do", Depp allegedly yelled upon learning from Brooks that he'd need to wrap it up.

Ant-Man and the Wasp had a worldwide opening of $161 million, including $85 million internationally this weekend. We will provide an update to the intentional and worldwide box office totals once they are made available.
Brooks said he was sacked from the production three days later, when he refused to sign a release waiving his right to sue over the incident. The filmmakers should have known that that Depp was using alcohol and drugs and was a threat to the well-being of others on the set, it says.
The suit seeks unspecified damages. The lawsuit obtained by Us claims that Depp responded, "Who the f-k are you?"
City of Lies - a drama focused on the investigation of Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac Shakur's murders which also stars Forest Whitaker - is expected to be released in September 2018. The actor is now suing his former managers for $25 million for mishandling his finances, and he was sued in May by a pair of former security guards over unpaid wages and a "toxic" work environment.
TMZ said its attempts for a comment from Depp's representatives were unsuccessful.
