Arrest warrant issued for Macaulay Culkin’s father

April 8, 1997

NEW YORK (AP) _ An arrest warrant was issued Monday for the father of ``Home Alone″ star Macaulay Culkin after he failed to keep a court date in connection with his alleged attack on a news photographer.

Christopher ``Kit″ Culkin, 52, was due in Manhattan Criminal Court to answer misdemeanor charges of criminal mischief, attempted assault and harassment. When neither he nor his lawyer showed up, Judge Arlene Goldberg issued a warrant for his arrest.

Culkin is accused of punching Andy Uzzle, a photographer who was on assignment for the New York Post, outside Culkin’s Manhattan apartment building on the evening of March 5.

Paul Shechtman, the lawyer who represented Culkin after the arrest, was not available for comment.

As the star of ``Home Alone″ movies and other films, Macaulay Culkin became the highest paid child star in history. Several of his siblings also are actors.
