Rhys Ifans Arrested at Comic Con: Police Say Yes, Sony Says No


Rhys Ifans
Two sides speak against each other on the report that the actor was involved in an incident just before he's due to participate at 'Amazing Spider-Man' panel.


Rhys Ifans may have delivered his job as "The Amazing Spider-Man" panelist at San Diego Comic Con well, but there was an incident before that. Words are, the movie's villain was arrested and charged with misdemeanor battery shortly before the panel started on Friday, July 22 at 1:45 P.M. However, this is the case of he said she said.

TheWrap acquired a statement from a police that the actor shoved a female security guard and appeared intoxicated. He was trying to enter the Hall H where the panel was held but when one of his entourage could not get in, he shoved the guard. "He was aggressive and belligerent," Lt. Andra Brown said. "He was ...berating everyone from the security staff to the United States of America."

Still in TheWrap's version, Ifans was required to pay a fine or contest the case before a judge. "But according to him, the U.S. sucks and he doesn't want to come back," Brown said.

Ifans' representative is yet to make a comment, but Sony Pictures which produces Spider-Man said in a statement, "It was a minor incident involving a security guard and smoking backstage. Police were called. But I was told Rhys was not arrested and was not handcuffed by the police. I am told he was given a ticket."

It is likely that the story is overblown because Ifans was talking to MTV News about his new role in "The Amazing Spider-Man" before the panel took place and he appeared alert.
