VANCOUVER -- Teen heart-throb Johnny Depp, who plays an undercover policeman on the Fox network TV series '21 Jump Street,' has been charged with assault and mischief.
Depp, 25, was arrested and held for three hours early Wednesday after police answered a noisy party complaint at a hotel, a Vancouver police spokesman said.
Depp assaulted a security guard during a scuffle, police said. Telephones in the lobby were also damaged in the incident.
The fight broke out after security asked a group of people to leave the hotel, police said.
Depp was released on a promise to appear in court April 12.
