He’s not such a hardy buck after all!

Hardy Bucks actor Martin Maloney has been cleared of assault charges after being accused of assaulting two bouncers in Dublin’s Big Tree Pub back in October 2010.

Maloney was doing some DJing in the pub at the time when apparently he got into a fight with security and got one bouncer in a head lock and started punching him.

Yesterday the actor was cleared after CCTV footage showed that the allegations were untrue.

We’re glad he’s leaving his hardy buck persona on screen and not bringing it into the real world!
