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.

Oh God, unless you're a current Mega Star you never pull out the do you know who I am. Honestly, chances are you've become so irrelevant that the cops really don't know who you are, and as Reese Witherspoon learned, they likely don't even care.

I have him a couple of times and he is a really nice guy. Down to earth. He was probably telling the cops who he is to make them understand that the reason that he and his girlfriend are being harassed is because he IS famous, not because he is giving attitude. He is basically asking for help. For him to pull movie star attitude would be unlike him. This is the wrong guy to call out.
