Jonathan Rhys Meyers detained in airport fight



Tbd-rhysmeyers062509 Tudors star Jonathan Rhys Meyers' woes with alcohol apparently are still ongoing, since the actor was detained by police on Saturday at Charles De Gaulle airport in Paris, Agencie France Presse reports. Apparently he had a bit too much of the toddy and some employees had the gall to not want to serve him.

The 31-year-old got into a shouting match with a bar manager in Terminal 2F because the establishment wouldn't give him another drink because he was visibly intoxicated. A waiter tried to break up the pair and ended up allegedly punching the guy.

Rhys Meyers was held in the drunk tank for three hours and then released. He was told to appear at the Correctional Tribunal in Bobigny in September for charges of "voluntary violence, contempt, issuing death threat and assault." And making Irish actors look bad.
