Sean Penn Charged With Battery and Vandalism

Sean Penn was charged with battery and vandalism on Friday for allegedly attacking a photographer and breaking his camera outside Brentwood Country Mart back in October.

The incident was caught on video and posted on TMZ, which helped the photogs case. Penn was officially charged with the two misdemeanor counts and faces 18 months behind bars if convicted.

His arraignment date is set for March 22, 2010 at Los Angeles County Superior Court.

It's not the first time Penn has faced charges like this. He was sentenced to 60 days in jail for punching a movie extra on set of his movie 'Colors' back in 1987. The only reason he did jail time was because he was on probation at the time for punching a songwriter at a Los Angeles club.

Word to the wise: Don't try to take Sean's photo!
