VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Vancouver police have recommended a charge of intimidation against a 52-year-old photographer whose car allegedly struck actor Ryan Reynolds.

Const. Brian Montague said the men were involved in a confrontation Friday evening and Reynolds was hit as the man tried to escape from an underground hotel parking lot.

Montague said Monday that officers have spoken with Reynolds, who had a sore knee and back but was OK to return to work the next day.

Montague said police spoke with several people, pulled security video and identified a suspect "quite early."

He said a man was arrested at the police station and remains in custody. His car has been seized.

Montague noted a charge of intimidation is uncommon and applies to someone who persistently follows someone or watches where a person works or lives.

Vancouver-born Reynolds is in the city to film his new movie "Deadpool."
