Sam Worthington
was arrested Saturday for allegedly fighting and had to be subdued with pepper spray ... TMZ has learned.

Cops say the "Avatar" star was at Vortex, a restaurant in Atlanta, when he was refused entrance because people at the door felt he was too intoxicated ... this after he got into an argument because he didn't have the ID required to get inside the club.

According to the police report, a witness told cops Worthington became disorderly. He allegedly pushed the doorman twice and the doorman responded by pepper spraying him and putting him in cuffs until the cops arrived.

We're told the entire incident is on surveillance video.

Worthington was charged with disorderly conduct -- fighting.

Sam's in Atlanta to shoot "Ten," which co-stars Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Daaaaaammmmmnnnnnnnn. He got pepper sprayed and got a citizen arrest from the doorman. He's lucky it wasn't the cook. They have knives.
