Prosecutors won’t be filing charges of vandalism against “Curb Your Enthusiasm” actor Jeff Garlin after he was accused of smashing a car window in a dispute over a parking space.
Instead, the 51-year-old will receive a hearing at the Los Angeles city attorney’s office where he will be advised about the law and how to avoid such incidents.
Frank Mateljan, spokesman for the city attorney, said Monday that Garlin’s alleged actions did not reach the threshold for a criminal filing. Office hearings are frequently used in such cases to avoid a full-blown criminal case.
“We examined the facts and determined an office hearing is most appropriate in this circumstance,” Mateljan said. . .
