Spokesman Frank Mateljan with the Los Angeles city attorney's office says the two misdemeanor counts were expected to be filed later Friday.
A phone message for Penn's attorney, Barry Hirsch, was not immediately returned.
Mateljan says Penn kicked a photographer during a dustup in October. The photographer's camera also was damaged.
If convicted, Penn could face up to 18 months in jail.
