Sam Worthington Arrested After Punching A Paparazzo


Avatar star Sam Worthington has joined Justin Bieber and Shia LaBeouf in the headlines for celebrity arrests.
The actor was arrested on Sunday afternoon and charged with assault after allegedly hitting a paparazzo in New York City.

According to eyewitnesses, a paparazzo allegedly kicked his girlfriend Lara Bingle followed by the actor punching him in return outside a Greenwich Village Bar.

Lieutenant John Grimpel from the New York Police Department said, “The photographer kicked Lara and then Worthington punched him causing the photographer to have lacerations to his nose.
He has been charged with assault. He punched the photographer.”

After being released from custody on bail, Worthington is scheduled to appear before the court at a later date.
The photographer was also arrested on the grounds of assault, reckless endangerment and harassment.

Worthington has been in trouble with the police before in 2012, when he got arrested in Atlanta after disorderly behavior following punching a bouncer who wouldn’t let him inside a club because of his intoxicated condition.
Last time, he hit the doorman twice before being sprayed with capsicum spray.
