Avatar’s Sam Worthington Arrested for Allegedly Punching Photographer

Don’t mess with a man’s girlfriend! Sam Worthington was arrested Sunday in NYC’s Greenwich Village after getting into a scuffle with photographer Sheng Li.

The actor, known for his lead role in Avatar, was reportedly defending his girlfriend, Lara Bingle, after Li supposedly kicked her in the shins!  The photographer was also arrested and charged with reckless endangerment, assault, and harassment.

This isn’t Sam’s first problem with the law as of late. Last November, he was arrested after a fight with a doorman at restaurant Vortex. After being refused entry, he reportedly pushed the guy. Charges were eventually dropped, though.

Here’s hoping after this that he can stay out of trouble!

Sam Worthington, Arrested

What is up with these stars thinking they can act a damn fool and get away with it? In further proof that White Girl Wasted syndrome knows no color or gender, Aussie actor Sam Worthington has been arrested in Atlanta, and the details are about as sketchy as his acting.

This past Saturday, the Avatar star is accused of going back to his Oz roots, fighting in public. When refused entrance because he seemed too intoxicated for the doorman, the actor blew his top and had to eventually be subdued with pepper spray. Now now now, Sam. Everyone knows that in America, you need I.D. to get in anywhere. Even Lindsay Lohan has learned that lesson. Worthington slammed into the doorman not just once – but twice – and the doorman was not having it. Out came the pepper spray, down went the star, and soon he was handcuffed as the police rushed to the scene. There’s video of this fight lurking somewhere and he was charged with disorderly conduct.

Sam Worthington is in Atlanta shooting Ten with Arnold Schwarzenegger. Let’s hope he doesn’t get 5 to 10 for this latest round of physical f*ckery!
