Los Angeles - Russell Brand is being sued for $25 000 by a man who claims he hit him with his car.

Victor Sneed has filed a lawsuit at the Los Angeles County Superior Court against the Rock of Ages actor claiming he drove into him in January 2012.

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, TMZ.com reports.

'Service is an honour'

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."
