Following a scuffle at an Atlanta club on Saturday and a subsequent arrest for disorderly conduct, charges against "Avatar" star Sam Worthington have been dropped, Access Hollywood has confirmed.
According to an Atlanta Police Department spokesperson, the incident occurred at Atlanta's Vortex club, when the actor allegedly pushed a club security guard twice after not being allowed to enter the club.
According to the police report, the 36-year-old was then pepper-sprayed and handcuffed by club security.
The Australian-born actor was arrested shortly after 10 PM on Saturday.
The report also stated that he did not have the proper identification needed to enter the club. The actor allegedly appeared intoxicated during the incident.
On Monday, charges against the actor were dismissed when the security guard was a no-show in court.
