Sam Worthington was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct Saturday night (Nov 3) after the “Avatar” actor got into a drunken incident with a bouncer at a restaurant in Atlanta, and had to be subdued with pepper spray, according to TMZ.

Worthington, 36, was reportedly trying to get into Atlanta’s Vortex Bar and Grill when he got into an argument with the doorman about not having his ID and being way too drunk to enter.

A witness at the scene told police that’s when the argument turned physical, and Worthington shoved the doorman twice. The doorman responded by pepper spraying the Australian actor and placing him in handcuffs until the cops arrived.

TMZ later updated their story, reporting that Sam went to court Monday morning (Nov 5) and the charges against the “Clash of the Titans” star were dropped because the bouncer failed to appear.

Sam is in Atlanta right now shooting the new movie “Ten” alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger.
