Actor Jude Law turned himself in to London police Tuesday after allegedly beating the crap out of a paparazzo outside of the star's home.
A police spokesman wouldn't identify Law by name, but confirmed, "A 34-year-old man from Maida Vale was arrested yesterday on suspicion of actual bodily harm after voluntarily attending a London police station." Law is both 34-years-old and lives in Maida Vale -- a swanky London neighborhood. Plus, Law was snapped leaving a police station -- smiling -- shortly after the alleged incident.
According to a published report, the battered photog says Law went nuts even though he wasn't shooting at the time, accusing the snapper of being a pedophile that only wanted to shoot Jude's children.
Police say the "34-year-old" was released on bail. A court date was set for sometime in October.
Last year, cameras caught Law lashing out at photogs in Los Angeles, telling them, "You don't film my f**king children" and threatening, "I'll have you up for pedophilia!"
Calls to Law's reps have not yet been returned.
