Video: Josh Brolin, Jeffery Wright were pepper-sprayed, stunned during arrest



Tbdbrolinwright010709 Attorney to the stars Blair Berk has worked his magic again, getting charges against Josh Brolin and Jeffrey Wright dropped in connection to their July arrest outside a bar in Shreveport, La. But a video obtained by TMZ shows some business that make The Juice* want to stay as far away from that city as possible.

Berk's deal dictates that all charges against the actors will be dropped if they keep their noses clean through March 11. The video, however, shows Brolin being pepper-sprayed while holding onto Wright outside the bar. Wright himself is held down by several officers and apparently hit with a stun gun several time while prone on the street.

"These arrests should never have happened. Thankfully the prosecution was able to see that and dismiss all charges," Wright told the site. "Unfortunately, there are no winners here, but I remain hopeful that Shreveport officials will be encouraged to dig at the root causes of certain police incidents down there. An old-fashioned refusal of service led to our arrest that night, and there's no room for that in America in 2009."
