Depp sued for allegedly punching location manager

Actor Johnny Depp has been sued for allegedly punching a location manager who was trying to enforce permit restrictions on the set of upcoming crime film “City of Lies”. Gregg “Rocky” Brooks alleged on Monday that the incident occurred on April 13, 2017, when Depp was filming outside the Barclay Hotel in downtown here, reports variety.com.

The film, then called “Labyrinth”, is based on a similarly titled book by Randall Sullivan, and chronicles police investigations of the deaths of rappers Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls. According to Brooks, the production had a permit to shoot until 7 p.m. outside the hotel, and until 10 p.m. inside. Brooks said he was asked to get the permit extended to accommodate Depp, who wanted to direct a longer version of the scene with two friends. Brooks says he was able to get the permit extended twice, but that at 11 p.m. the permit official said they would have to wrap it up.
