He done it again.
After being arrested in 2007 for being drunk and behaving disorderly at a Dublin airport and not to mention spending time in rehab to treat his alcoholism , The 31 years old Tudors star has done it again and this time- It’s France.
Jonathan Rhys Meyers was detained by the French polices on Saturday after an alledged assault on an airport employee. The french press reported that Meyers were drunk during the incident and was placed in custody for several hours after he punched the employee at Charles De Gaulle airport in Paris.
The reason for the brawl?
Well, the bartender at “Le Quotidien” in the departure area of the airport at terminal 2F refused to sell drinks to the actor, who already looked drunk to him. This then lead to a shouting match between ‘King Henry VIII’ and the bar manager and when a waiter tried to separate them, Meyers punched him.
He was later handcuffed by the police before being taken into custody after he taunted them by boasting about how rich he was, tossing euros on the floor and told the officers: “You wanna hit me? Hit me!”
He was later released but need to come back to France and appear in court this September for charges of “voluntary violence, contempt, issuing death threats and assault.
It’s sad to see such talented, loveable actor being reduced to this. Jonathan Rhys Meyers have to face his own inner demons himself and there are so much others can do for him. We can only help you from the sidelong and this battle is you to face.
What is troubling my mind now is how can the filming of season 4 of The Tudors fare from this?
