Sam Worthington was pepper-sprayed and arrested outside a restaurant in Atlanta over the weekend.
Sam Worthington was arrested after allegedly pushing a door man twice outside the Atlanta restaurant, Vortex.

"Avatar" star Sam Worthington was pepper-sprayed and arrested for disorderly conduct Saturday night after getting into a fight with a bouncer at a restaurant in Atlanta.

An arrest report from the Atlanta Police Department indicates that Worthington was "highly intoxicated" as he tried to enter the Vortex restaurant, and started using "profane language" and pushed the bouncer when he was not admitted inside.

The bouncer then pepper-sprayed and handcuffed the 36-year-old actor until the police arrived. Worthington was arrested on a charge of disorderly conduct, but charges against the actor were dismissed Monday morning.

Worthington is reportedly in Atlanta filming the movie "Ten" alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger.
