– 6th November, Atlanta, USA: We don’t normally do celebrity coverage, but this update is for our readers who may be concerned with the news that the Aussie star of Avatar and Clash of the Titans, was arrested in Atlanta for drunk and disorderly behavior.
It was reported overnight that Worthington was arrested and subdued with pepper spray after an altercation with a door man at Vortex Bar & Grill restaurant in Atlanta where he is currently filming the movie Ten.
News just at hand is that the charges against Worthington have been dropped in an Atlanta court when the doorman he was accused of assaulting failed to make an appearance.
Celebrity gossip website TMZ reports that the doorman identified as Jerry Link, had refused Worthington entry as he was too `drunk and disorderly’, when an argument ensued because he didn’t have the required ID.
TMZ also mentioned a police report that indicated a witness had reported that Worthington pushed Mr Link twice to which he responded by pepper spraying the actor and handcuffing him in house arrest until the police arrived.
The charges against 35 year old Worthington were however dropped in court as Mr Link was not present in the court room as is required.
TMZ reports that Mr Link advised no one had told him to be there.
