Gérard Depardieu has filed a counter-complaint after he was involved in a traffic collision last week.

The French actor was accused of assault and battery after allegedly punching a motorist in the face following the accident.

Depardieu, who was riding a scooter, has now accused the unidentified man of reckless driving, E! Online says.

He reportedly filed his counter-complaint on Saturday (August 18), two days after the original incident.

Depardieu has also spoken about the crash on French radio, and is quoted as saying: "My reaction was perhaps a little over the top because I was very scared... Some people just see me and file a complaint."

The news comes a year after Depardieu caused controversy by urinating on the floor of a plane, reportedly because of "prostate problems".
