RICHMOND, British Columbia — Police said Friday that Denise Richards won’t face charges for throwing two laptop computers over a balcony in a tussle with paparazzi in western Canada.
The actress was accused of hurling two laptops from a balcony at the River Rock Casino and Hotel on Wednesday, hitting two elderly women below.
The incident occurred after two photographers tried to snap pictures of Richards by gaining unauthorized access to the set where she’s filming a movie with actress Pamela Anderson.
The 90-and 81-year-old women were sitting in the lobby when the computers hit them on their arms, causing minor injuries.
Royal Canadian Mounted Police Cpl. Peter Thiessen says it’s not in the public interest to bring criminal charges.
He says the photographers, Richards and her management company have agreed to settle the matter civilly regarding the damages to the photographers’ laptops.
Richards, 35, has appeared in the movies “Wild Things” and “Starship Troopers.” She has two daughters, Sam 2, and Lola, 1, from her marriage to Charlie Sheen.
