He says he suffered personal injury, property damage and had hospital bills as a result of the accident, totalling a claim of $25,000.

Victor says Russell - who had split with wife Katy Perry just a month before the alleged incident - was driving "negligently" at the time, reports.

If convicted it will be the second time Russell has been involved in court proceedings this year after he was ordered to pay $500 in court fees and undertake 20 hours of community service after he threw a photographer's phone through a window in March.

However, he claimed afterwards he was "honoured" to do it.

He said: "I don't know what their format of community service is, but community service, that doesn't seem like a punishment. That seems like a duty.

"We are our community. Service is an honour. I'll be happy to do it."
