Posted Tuesday October 30, 2012 9:55 AM GMT

Celebrities have always been easy targets for sue-happy lawyers, and it seems Russell Brand could be paying out the nose for an alleged incident that happened back in January.

According to a report, the “Get Him To The Greek” hunk will answer to charges of hitting a pedestrian named Victor Sneed with his car, causing injuries to the plaintiff.

Sneed claims Brand was driving “negligently” when the accident occurred and he’s demanding that Russell pay up.

Moreover, Victor says he has big hospital bills and a diminished earning capacity because of Brand and he’s seeking $25,000 in damages.
