Sam Worthington ‘settles’ NY photog assault case

Washington, May 2: Sam Worthington has settled the assault case against him after a scuffle with a photographer in New York in February.

The ‘Avatar’ actor wrote in a signed statement submitted to the Manhattan Criminal Court that he understands that as long as he continues to lead a law-abiding life, this matter will be “dismissed and sealed”, People Magazine reported.

Worthington, who is shooting a film in Europe, had been charged with third-degree assault, third-degree attempted assault and second-degree harassment after he and his girlfriend Lara Bingle, got into an altercation with paparazzo Sheng Li on a New York street. (ANI)
