The actor Liev Schreiber is scheduled to court Tuesday for allegedly harassing a photographer in June.
The lawyer of Schreiber, Jonathan Ripps, confirmed that the alleged incident took place, but claimed that the accusation "does not jump to the level of laws that are infringed".
Ripps said that a photographer followed the actor around a Nyack, N.Y., set during the shootings of the Showtime series "Ray Donovan", according to the Journal News.
Ripps told the newspaper that Schreiber had pushed the photographer's camera away after a flash burst in his face.
Schreiber was charged with second-degree harassment.
"We will actively discuss it with the District Attorney's office and we can reject it," said Ripps, adding that Schreiber intends to plead not guilty, the New York Post reported.
