Sam WorthingtonSam Worthington has been charged with disorderly conduct.

The Avatar star was arrested on Saturday for allegedly fighting and had to be subdued with pepper spray. A police source told gossip website TMZ.com that the actor got into a violent argument outside The Vortex bar in Atlanta, Georgia, over the weekend after he was refused entry for being intoxicated and failing to produce any ID.

According to the official report, an eyewitness told police officers that the 36-year-old actor, who is currently in Atlanta filming his new movie Ten alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger, became disorderly and allegedly pushed the club's doorman twice before he was pepper sprayed and restrained by security staff at the bar.

The incident is said to have been captured in full by the bar's security cameras and Sam was put in handcuffs until police arrived at the scene and arrested him.

Study shows concussions up in hockey

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, NHL,

Eric LindrosLast week a study was released showing that not only were the number of concussions up in junior hockey in Canada, but it was seven times higher than previously reported. The study followed two junior teams during the 2009-10 season and recorded 17 players that suffered 21 concussions during 52 games. This serves as a very real warning to players, coaches and even parents that hockey at the grassroots level can be just as dangerous as hockey in the NHL.

Should the NHL adopt the Olympic style?

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Championship, NHL, Olympics,

Olympic HokceyWith one game left in the Olympic hockey tournament, it’s probably safe to say that we as fans are hungry for more of the Olympic style. The tournament in Vancouver over the past two weeks has shown us competitive game after competitive game, regardless of who the puck was dropping between, with fewer duds than anybody could have expected. We’ve seen upsets, comebacks, overtimes, and everything in between, and all of it without many of the things that plague the everyday NHL.

Man Basher Ashley Greene

Ashley GreeneWord to the wise, guys: don’t make Ashley Greene angry.

The Twilight Saga: New Moon actress is a huge fan of martial arts and says it makes her feel empowered when she practices her skills on men.

“I think part of it is that it’s really empowering and part of it is because it’s fun. It’s incredible to see what your body can do and what you’re capable of and not needing a weapon to defend yourself is a really great thing. It puts my dad at ease and gives him a little piece of mind. I started doing martial arts when I was really young and I ended up sparring with boys instead of girls because I was that into it and I didn’t want to beat up the girls. It’s a fun thing and I’ve always been really athletic.”

Ashley, 22, is planning on increasing her martial arts training after being put through her paces by the trainers on the third installment of the vampire franchise The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.

“I’m definitely going to get more involved in it. When we were filming Eclipse we had fight training for about six weeks, so that kind of re-sparked that bug. I had a personal trainer on top of that and they had us do mixed martial arts fighting as well.”

Box Office Breakdown: Wolverine Claws Its Way to the Top

Wolverine

Despite a growing list of hurdles (leaked footage, swine flu, mediocre reviews), proved it was a force to be reckoned with last weekend. Although it failed to surpass X-Men: The Last Stand (that 2006 entry debuted at $122.9 million), the Fox feature trounced the competition with an $85.1 million open. In other words, Wolverine earned over $20 million more than the other Top Ten entries…combined.

Sitting far back in second place was , Matthew McConaughey’s attempt to bring a little muscle into the box office. The romantic comedy, costarring Jennifer Garner, grossed $15.4 million on the weekend before Mother’s Day. (That’s less than a million more than what Made of Honor pulled in at this same time last year.) Meanwhile, last Friday’s only other wide release, Battle for Terra, raked in a disappointing $1.1 million for a 12th place finish.

After back-to-back roles in music-related dramas, Beyonce Knowles proved she could deliver without having to sing a note. , a thriller produced for approximately $20 million, pulled in nearly $29 million for a 1st place finish. The film, also featuring two NBC stars (The Office’s Idris Elba and Heroes’ Ali Larter), more than doubled last week’s champ, 17 Again.

Meanwhile, an Academy Award winner and an Iron Man joined forces for a surprising fourth place finish. , costarring Jamie Foxx and Robert Downey Jr., didn’t even cross the $10 million mark. Although it was once considered as a pre-Oscars release, the film’s debut grossed less than last week’s nominee-filled entry, State of Play.
