Sam Worthington Arrested For Defending Lara Bingle

The bodyguard.
Our girl Lara Bingle attracts the paps like moths to a particularly lovely flame. Her boyfriend, actor Sam Worthington must be at the end of his rope with it. Wherever she goes, it's like "Lara!" this and "Oi, Bingle!" that. Sometimes, they even get physical. Like early this morning in New York for example, when reportedly an over-zealous arsehole paparazzi bro blocked Lara's path on the street. 
 
 
Apparently, he was taking photos of the Oyster contributor and model (preventing her from walking freely) and then he kicked her. Yeah, you heard. He dared to hurt our Bingle!
 
 
So then, heroic Sam Worthington came in and punched him in the face. As Department Lieutenant John Grimpel said, "Yes, Sam Worthington was arrested tonight and charged with assault. He was released on a desk ticket with return to appear in court on 26 Feb." The police guy also said that the incident outside NYC club, Cubbyhole, saw the punched paparazzo get charged with assault, harassment and reckless endangerment. So just another day on the job then.
