Avatar star arrested for assaulting photographer

Actor and Avatar star Sam Worthington was arrested on Sunday for punching a member of the paparazzi in the face.

It has been reported that the violence was in reaction to the photographer kicking his girlfriend Lara Bingle.

The incident occurred in New York City on Sunday evening. The actor was later released on bail with a court date.

Sam seems to make a habit of getting himself into trouble. The actor was involved in an incident in 2012 where he was arrested for getting into a fight in Atlanta, Georgia.
