No Omar Hero

To his parking valet:
Parking valet Juan Anderson is wondering whether actor Omar Sharif will pay up in dollars or in euros after winning a $318,190 judgment from the film star as the result of a 2005 altercation outside a Beverly Hills restaurant. The "Dr Zhivago" star allegedly punched Anderson in the face when the valet refused a 20 euro note as payment for retrieving his car. Anderson, who is from Guatemala, alleged that Sharif called him a "stupid Mexican" and sued Sharif. On Tuesday, a Santa Monica Superior Court judge awarded Anderson $318,190 in damages.
