"Tudors" star Jonathan Rhys Meyers was detained for several hours after allegedly punching a waiter in a drunken scuffle at a Paris airport, Agence France Presse reports.
The Irish actor was placed in custody on Saturday after the altercation at the Le Quotidien bar in terminal 2F at Charles de Gaulle airport. A server reportedly refused to serve the 31-year-old star, who appeared drunk. After a shouting fight with the bar's manager, another employee tried to separate the pair. Rhys Meyers then allegedly punched the employee.
He has been ordered to appear in court in a Paris suburb in September on charges of "willful violence, outrage, hitting and threatening death," a source told the news service.
This isn't the Bend It Like Beckham star's first airport scuffle.
The star was previously arrested and charged with being drunk and disorderly at Dublin airport in 2007.
