‘Curb’ Actor Won’t Be Charged in Parking Spot Incident

'Curv' actor to attend office hearing at L.A. attorney's office to settle matter

LOS ANGELES-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.

According to a police report, the dispute occurred in the parking lot of a Studio City CVS drugstore. Garlin was arguing with the driver of a Mercedes and allegedly broke the driver’s side window of her car with his bare hand.

He was arrested Saturday.

Mateljan said the woman whose car was damaged has the option of suing Garland in civil court for damages.

Garlin played Larry David’s friend and manager on “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and was the show’s co-executive producer. He has also appeared frequently on “Arrested Development” and other television shows.
