The security guard who was allegedly shoved by a foul-mouthed Sam Worthington may press charges against the Avatar star, following a reported drunken incident over the weekend.

“I don’t know,” Vortex restaurant security guard Jerry Link told Celebuzz exclusively.  “I couldn’t even tell you that. I have to talk to the company I work with first to see how we handle that.”

Worthington was originally charged with disorderly conduct by Atlanta police after the incident; the charges were dismissed because the witness was a no-show in court.

According to Link, Worthington put his hands on him three times.

“He bumped into me first, then he shoved me in the chest twice,” he says.

Link reveals that the 36-year-old Australian-born star looked more like one of the homeless people who frequent the Atlanta area where the restaurant is located -- and not a famous actor.

“We see all sorts of people in the area. He had on a hoodie, dingy basketball shorts, and had a handful of loose shirts in his hand,” he said. “We get lots of homeless people and drunk college kids. I would never have thought he was an entertainer.”

In addition, Link’s observations of the actor were of someone “way over the limit.”

“I know when a person is intoxicated," he said. “He was walking down the street staggering and he couldn’t stand up straight. He approached the entryway, and I told him we weren’t going to be serving him.”

That’s when the actor turned “belligerent” and Link says Worthington started “threatening” him. “He told me to get out of his way and was screaming profanities, like ‘F**k you! I’m coming in!’ He told me that he’d get through and was arguing with another customer. I told him, ‘You don’t want to go to jail for something stupid.’ He said ‘I’m not going to jail.’”

Link pepper-sprayed the actor, who was subsequently arrested shortly after 10 p.m. Nov. 3.

“He didn’t actually calm down until he realized he was going to jail," Link said.

As previously reported, the venue told Celebuzz it was making no comment about the incident.

Worthington bonded out on $453 bail.
