Actor Sam Worthington, best known for playing the lead role in Avatar, was arrested on Sunday following an altercation with a photographer, New York City police have stated.
According to NYPD detective Kellyann Ort, the 37-year-old has been accused of punching photog Sheng Li in the face after the paparazzo allegedly kicked Sam’s girlfriend, Lara Bingle in the shins.
Following the incident, which occurred around 5:30 Sunday evening, Sam was charged with assault and was released on bail—although he must appear in court later this week.
Additionally, the photographer was also arrested and charged with assault, reckless endangerment and harassment.
