Sam Worthington, star of ‘Clash of the Titans’ and Avatar was arrested in Atlanta, Georgia Saturday night after allegedly getting into a fight with a restaurant doorman. According to a report from E! News, Worthington was denied entry to Vortex because he was already too intoxicated. The 36 year old actor is said to have shoved the doorman twice and used profanity forcing the doorman to pepper spray Worthington and restrain him with handcuffs until the police arrived on the scene.
Worthington was arrested and taken into custody on charges of disorderly conduct but the charges were later dropped when a witness failed to appear in court.
Worthington isn’t the only celebrity to run afoul of the law in recent months; here are a few other celebrities whose mug shots have been making the rounds.
Olympic medalist Shaun White was arrested recently in Nashville and charged with vandalism and public intoxication after pulling a fire alarm and breaking a phone at a hotel. He is also accused of kicking a passerby who attempted to prevent him from fleeing the scene.

Songstress Fiona Apple was arrested back in September after police at the Sierra Blanca check point searched Apple’s tour bus and found a small quantity of hashish. She was taken to the Hudspeth County Jail on drug possession charges. This is the same infamous Texas town that arrested Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg and Arnie Hammer. Nelly was also pulled over in Sierra Blanca recently and narrowly escaped a trip to prison when drugs and weapons were found on his tour bus.
