The comedian is known for his outrageous stage act
Comedian Roy "Chubby" Brown has been cleared of assaulting a woman in a Teesside supermarket car park.
The comic was accused of hitting 21-year-old Kelly Oliver after almost colliding with her grandmother's car in Middlesbrough last September.
The 65-year-old, of Northallerton, North Yorkshire, was charged with common assault under his real name, Royston Vasey.
He denied the charge and was acquitted at Teesside Magistrates' Court.
The prosecution had alleged that the comedian had reacted angrily after Miss Oliver watched him reverse his silver Lexus within an inch of her grandmother's car in the car park of the Middlesbrough town centre branch of Sainsbury's on 2 September.
Miss Oliver claimed that when she walked over to a ticket machine, he got out of his car and began shouting at her.
She then said he hit her with his right hand on the left side of her face.
The comedian admitted confronting Miss Oliver, but said when she raised her arm he believed he was going to be hit himself and pushed her away.
The court was shown CCTV images of the row, but the chairman of the Bench, Fran Wood, said it had not been "helpful" to either the defence or the prosecution.
She said: "Due to the inconsistencies of the evidence of all witnesses and the poor quality of the CCTV footage, we are not convinced beyond reasonable doubt that Mr Vasey is guilty of the offence."
Speaking after the verdict Chubby Brown said: "I was proved innocent, as I said all along.
"I have had so many sleepless nights and now I am just looking forward to getting back to normal.
"I just want to get back to doing what I do best, which is make people laugh."
