Sam Worthington was on the hook, then he was off the hook, after an allegedly drunken scuffle Saturday night in Atlanta that led to his arrest on suspicion of disorderly conduct.
The "Avatar" star was refused entrance to a restaurant because he appeared intoxicated and didn't have proper identification to get into the place, TMZ reported Monday. Worthington then became disorderly, according to a police report obtained by the website, and allegedly pushed doorman Jerry Link twice.
The doorman in turn nailed the actor with pepper spray and cuffed him until cops arrived, the report said. And after the blast? Worthington told Link, "I'm a DEA agent," according to TMZ.
Worthington plays a DEA agent in the film "Ten," which he's shooting in Atlanta and which costars Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Federal fabrication aside, Worthington was out of trouble almost as fast as he got into it when charges were dismissed Monday morning after Link didn't show in court. The bouncer, however, maintains nobody told him about the court date.
