- Story Text: Photographer Ian Whittaker told the British tabloid, "Daily Star" that he and Grant, 46, clashed near the home of the "Four Weddings and a Funeral" star.
Whittaker said Grant abused and kicked him on Tuesday (April 24) before lobbing the beans. The paper printed photos of Grant with a plastic tub of food raised over his head.
Grant's lawyers Schillings said an incident had taken place and was now under investigation.
A police spokeswoman, when asked about the incident, said a 46-year-old man had been arrested on Wednesday evening (April 25) and questioned at a London police station after an allegation of assault in west London.
He was bailed to return in May.
This is the second time the actor has been charged with a criminal offence. Grant was famously arrested in Los Angeles, California on June 27, 1995 on charges of "lewd conduct" with a prostitute, Divine Brown.
