Sam Worthington Hitched
Sam admits that he's married in paparazzo video.
Avatar actor Sam Worthington appeared in court today for slugging paparazzo Sheng Li in the face in Greenwich Village last week.

Li is accused of kicking Worthington’s gal pal Lara Bingle in the shins before the Aussie Hunk intervened. But Li claimed the blond beauty started the tussle, not him.

Plus, Worthington has been handed a restraining order, barring Sam from having any type of contact with Li, including via social media or the phone.

Sam, who most likely was secretly married to Bingle, was charged with 2 counts of 3rd degree assault, 1 count of attempted assault, 1 count of harassment. He could spend up to one year in jail if convicted.

Worthington will be back in court on May 8th. Launch the gallery for more pictures of Sam appearing in court.
