Edward Norton 'involved in scuffle with photographer'

By
Edward Norton has allegedly been involved in a scuffle with a photographer.

Alain Becerra-Calderon apparently approached Norton while he was walking in New York City on Wednesday (April 24) and began filming the Moonrise Kingdom star.

Becerra-Calderon is said to have continually asked Norton if they shared a resemblance, reportedly leading Norton to question why the photographer was following him.

Norton then shoved Becerra-Calderon's camera away when the man refused to stop pursuing him, according to Page Six.

The paparazzo apparently checked himself into Beth Israel Hospital, with a doctor finding that he had tissue contusion in his middle finger.

A source told the newspaper that Becerra-Calderon asked the doctor to apply a splint, but was only at the hospital for a short time.

Becerra-Calderon later claimed that his encounter with Norton was "very, very scary", adding: "[Edward] needs to learn to control his temper... I asked if I could ask a question, and he grabbed my phone."

An NYPD spokesperson later told E! News that Norton was initially probed for a possible harassment charge, but the criminal case was closed and the matter referred to civil court due to a lack of witnesses.

Norton has not offered any comment on the alleged confrontation.

The actor was recently in the headlines for the birth of his and Shauna Robertson's baby son and for having secretly wed before his child's arrival.
