Hugh Grant has been arrested and questioned by police after a photographer accused the actor of attacking him outside of Grant's home.

Photographer Ian Whittaker told the Daily Star newspaper that Grant abused and kicked him, before throwing a tub of baked beans at him.

Pictures were then published by the newspaper which allegedly showed Grant with the beans raised above his head.

A spokeswoman from the Metropolitan police confirmed that a 46-year-old man was arrested in connection to an allegation of assault on a 43-year-old man.

The incident occurred in Redcliffe Road in London on April 24th, the force representative added. The man has been bailed to return in May.

Grant is one of Britain's best known actors and recently starred in the comedy Music and Lyrics alongside Drew Barrymore.

The actor has played roles in both Bridget Jones films as well as starring in Notting Hill and Four Weddings and a Funeral.
