He’s well-known for having a quick fuse, and Sam Worthington ended up in handcuffs following a fracas outside a New York City watering hole.

The “Avatar” hunk was on his way out of the Greenwich Village bar with girlfriend Lara Bing when a paparazzo allegedly kicked his lady.

From there, Sam punched shutterbug Li Shang in the face and craziness ensued, resulting in both Worthington and the photographer being taken into custody.

After being booked for assault, Sam was released and given an appearance ticket while Shang is still in jail on charges of endangerment, assault and harassment.
