Sam Worthington Assault Case

Hey Officer, Do You Know Who I Am??

Sam Worthington played the celebrity card when he was arrested for allegedly attacking a photog ... asking the cop, "Have you seen the movie, 'Avatar?'" ... this according to the photog's lawyer.

Photographer Sheng Li was in court this AM ... he's also charged with assault as well as harassment.  Sheng's lawyer, Mark Heller, painted his client as the victim of a boorish star, who assaulted his client and then tried robbing him by grabbing his camera and attempting to steal it.

Worthington was not in court ... his case is being handled separately.

It's unclear what Heller is trying to do here -- because if his client really did assault Worthington, it doesn't matter if Worthington tried playing the celeb card.

But the always entertaining Heller knows how to put on a show.

I have no idea who he is and I watch a lot of TV and movies. So likely, the cop didn't know either. I'd have just laughed at him and said, I don't know who you are and it doesnt matter if I did moron

Why do entertainers think they are above everybody? In the wild wild west, gun slingers would shoot at their feet and make them dance for them.

How the hell is Heller representing people in LA when he is an attorney in NY? He clearly wants to be associated with celebrities but he also clearly is unqualified as a lawyer.

Talk about someone who cannot act. This dude makes every sh#t actor on Lifetime look like Humphrey Bogart. He is also entitled yet has no reason to be. His gf is a nobody who thinks she is the second coming of Cindy Crawford and Gisele Bunchen. Both hideous tools.
