Anthony Hall is facing at least three-years in state prison after being charged with felony battery in the alleged beating of his neighbour two months ago.
The star of such films as “National Lampoon’s Vacation” and “Sixteen Candles” allegedly got into a physical altercation with his neighbour, Richard Samson, who reportedly emerged from the scuffle with a broken wrist and injured back following their confrontation at the Playa del Rey condos.
The L.A. County DA is officially charging Hall with felony battery with serious bodily injury and the DA office is recommending bail be set at $80,000. The D.A.’s office has not yet booked Hall, but will likely do so at the still-to-be-announced arraignment. “There are special circumstances alleged, so the four-year max sentence goes to seven,” reports TMZ.
TMZ also shared security-cam footage of the alleged assault, in which Hall can be seen apparently pushing the other man to the ground.
This isn’t the first time the “Breakfast Club” star has gotten in trouble with the law due to altercations with neighbours. Back in 2011, Hall was booked on suspicion of disturbing the peace after neighbours complained that he “allegedly tore up plants, yelled at people in the complex, and pounded on doors” late at night, with neighbours at the time telling TMZ that Hall had been acting oddly and aggressively, “cussing at people who walk by, flipping them off and even attempting to squirt people with a hose … for no apparent reason.”
