Josh Brolin and Jeffrey Wright can breathe easier: prosecutors have dropped all charges against the two actors, who were allegedly involved in a barroom brawl in Louisiana last summer, says an attorney for Brolin and Wright.
On July 12, while shooting Oliver Stone's biopic W, Brolin, Wright and five members of the film's crew were arrested on misdemeanor charges – including interfering with police officers – at the Stray Cat Club, where the fight reportedly broke out.
Los Angeles attorney Blair Berk, who represented all seven of the implicated parties, says prosecutors in Shreveport have agreed to drop all charges against the group within 60 days, the Associated Press reports.

Actor Josh Brolin, who plays George W. Bush in the new bio pic W., is expected to impersonate the president when he hosts Saturday Night Live on Oct. 18.
"Expect a lot of fun and some surprising moments," Brolin told PEOPLE at the W. premiere Tuesday night in New York City. "There’s a good chance that W. [himself] may appear in a skit," he added coyly. "You’ll have to watch to find out."
Brolin, 40, who mastered the president's Texas twang and swagger, says the mannerisms have been hard to shake. Even his wife, actress Diane Lane and kids have told him to cut it out. "I found myself doing his hand gestures and my wife got mad at me a few times," Brolin says. "And if I tell a joke now I sound like W. My kids keep telling me, 'Stop doing the voice thing, Dad. It’s not cool.' "

The news in July out of Louisiana, where Josh Brolin was playing President George W. Bush for filmmaker Oliver Stone's sure-to-be controversial biopic W, was stunning: Brolin, W costar Jeffrey Wright and five others were arrested in connection with a bar fight.
Now, with the machinery gearing up to promote the movie about the 43rd and current chief executive – W is set to open Oct. 17, in anticipation of the Nov. 4 national election – Brolin, who has yet to explain what happened, continues to shed little light on that night in Shreveport.
"Let me put it this way," a poker-faced Brolin, 40, tells the fashion magazine W for its October issue, on sale next Tuesday. "It was nice to be in jail knowing that I hadn't done anything wrong. And it was maddening to be in jail knowing that I hadn't done anything wrong."

On the heels of his arrest, Josh Brolin stepped out for the premiere of Frozen River Tuesday, but avoided reporters and politely declined to pose for photographs.
"Sorry, I'm kind of in a bad predicament right now!" Brolin, 40, told photographers with a smile, after he arrived at the West Hollywood event with his two children minutes before the movie started.
He attended the premiere to support the film's star, Melissa Leo, a longtime friend and a costar in a TV show they did together.
On Saturday, Brolin also was spotted with Sean Penn, Robin Wright Penn and director Oliver Stone at Locanda Portofino in Santa Monica. An observer said Brolin appeared to be in a good mood, dancing a jig outside the restaurant and giving Penn a bear hug. The group also posed for pictures with the restaurant valet men and joked with fellow diners.
