Sam Worthington Off The Hook For Fighting Arrest
Sam Worthington reportedly wasn’t on his best behavior over the weekend in Atlanta, but luckily for him, he won’t see any real fallout from it. The outstanding charges filed against the actor have been dropped because the plaintiff decided not to pursue the matter, leaving the Avatar star with nothing to clean up but his pride.
According to TMZ, Worthington was in Georgia over the weekend filming scenes for Ten, his upcoming film with Arnold Schwarzenegger, when he decided to enjoy the local nightlife. Unfortunately, by the time he made it Vortex, a local restaurant, he was allegedly inebriated and without identification. When the bouncer refused to provide him access, Worthington supposedly pushed the doorman twice, got belligerent and ended up with pepper spray all over his face. The police arrived not long after, and the mystery doorman turned Worthington over. He was promptly arrested, hauled off to the station and charged with disorderly conduct—fighting. His initial court appearance to answer the charges was this morning, but without a complaining witness, there wasn’t any point in moving forward.
I can’t imagine producers were too pleased with Worthington’s behavior, but with all of the charges now out of the way, his little brush with the law shouldn’t affect the movie’s shooting schedule. Plus, one would hope this entire mess would serve as a nice lesson as to why having a little less fun is usually the better call.
