Sam Worthington arrested for assaulting a photographer
Sam Worthington was arrested in NYC. The 37-year-old ‘Avatar’ actor was detained for allegedly punching photographer Sheng Li. According to CNN, Sam was booked and then released on an assault charge. It looks like it all started after Li supposedly kicked Worthington’s girlfriend, Lara Bingle, in the shins.
Li was also arrested and charged with reckless endangerment, assault and harassment.
This is not the first time when Sam gets arrested. Last November her was arrested in Atlanta following a scuffle with a doorman at restaurant Vortex. He pushed and used profane language after being refused entry to the restaurant. In the end, the charges were dropped. We’ll see if this is going to happen this time around.
Sam and his 26-year-old Australian model began dating last September. The rumor has it the two got secretly married, but no official statement has been given so far.
As for his professional career, the actor recently signed on for two more ‘Avatar’ sequels along with costar Zoe Saldana.
