Although the official purpose of his visit to Atlanta was to film Ten with Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sam Worthington accidentally ended up starring in a movie that will probably turn out to be far more entertaining: a grainy surveillance tape of him getting into a drunken scuffle with a doorman, then getting pepper sprayed in the face.
According to TMZ, the Avatar star tried to get into the restaurant Vortex, but was refused entry at the door for being too drunk. After being unable to produce the necessary ID, Worthington allegedly became disorderly and pushed the doorman twice. The doorman responded by taking out a can of pepper spray and applying it directly to Worthington’s face. He then placed Worthington in handcuffs and held him until the police arrived.
Luckily for Worthington, the complaining witness didn’t show up in court, and all charges have been dismissed.
The entire incident was apparently caught on videotape, although the tape has yet to be released. In the meantime, we’ll just have to piece together what happened that night using this mug shot and our imaginations…
