Another Aussie actor has been arrested after getting heavy with the wrong person.

Sam Worthington was arrested after reportedly clashing with a doorman at a restaurant in Atlanta on Saturday.

The "Clash of the Titans" and "Avatar" star, 36, was supposedly not allowed to enter Vortex Bar and Grill because he appeared highly intoxicated, according to the police report obtained by E! News.

Worthington — from Western Australia — was also reportedly upset for having been refused entry to the restaurant because he didn't have ID.

The doorman used pepper spray on Worthington and handcuffed him until police arrived, E! News reported.

Australia's Daily Telegraph reported that Worthington screamed: "I'm a DEA agent! You f***ed up now!"

Doorman Jerry Link told TMZ that Worthington was wearing a dirty hoodie and looked like a homeless person.

"I've never seen 'Avatar' or 'Terminator'", Link reportedly added.

The incident was reportedly captured on security camera.

According to, Worthington is in Atlanta shooting the movie "Ten" in which he co-stars with Arnold Schwarzenegger.
