Last November, James Bond star Pierce Brosnan found himself in some trouble in Yellowstone National Park after he allegedly walked into a thermal area in the park, “violating closures and use limits.”

Of course, this is a big time no no at Yellowstone, considering hot springs at the park can reach temperatures up to 345 degrees and could potentially, well, fry you alive.

The National Parks Service says on its website:

“Hot springs have injured or killed more people in Yellowstone than any other natural feature…

Water in hot springs can cause severe or fatal burns, and scalding water underlies most of the thin, breakable crust around hot springs.”

And now, according to MSNBC, the 70-year-old is pleading not guilty to the charges.

The outlet states that Brosnan was at the Yellowstone Film Ranch while filming the new Western, The Unholy Trinity.

Brosnan has yet to publicly comment on the situation, and his publicist and legal representatives haven’t said anything to the outlet as well.

However, as many have pointed out, Brosnan seemingly posted (and then deleted) photos of himself appearing to stand in the off-limits areas surrounding the hot springs.

It’s no secret that national parks are adamant on enforcing the rules, considering the dangerous situations you can find yourself in if you walk into restricted areas.

I guess we’ll see if Brosnan faces any more repercussions from this.
