City prosecutors say the Scottish-born actor had a run-in with a photographer on Oct. 7 after leaving a premiere party for the film "RocknRolla."
Butler's manager, Alan Siegel, says Butler was forced to have his driver stop the car after the photographer repeatedly sped through red lights and almost struck two pedestrians.
Butler, who also stars in this summer's "The Ugly Truth," faces up to six months in jail if convicted.
