UPDATE: The Amazing Spider-Man's Rhys Ifans Arrested At SDCC

Apparently Ifans, who plays Dr Curt Connors in Marc WEbb's upcoming reboot got a bit out of line at yesterdays Comic Con coverage of the movie. Not too many details are known for now but click for what we have..

Anyone who watched the panel vids and interviews with the cast of The Amazing Spider-Man yesterday could probably tell Ifans had had a few..to put it mildly. Well evidently the Welshman is a mean drunk if the following is accurate..



Here is the full report from The Wrap

"The Amazing Spider-Man" villain Rhys Ifans was arrested and charged with misdemeanor battery for shoving a female security guard before Friday night's Comic-Con panel for the film, police tell TheWrap.

Ifans, who smelled of alcohol, became irate when a member of his entourage was unable to enter the hall for lack of proper credentialing, police said. He shoved the guard, and was allowed to participate in the panel, but the guard subsequently made a citizen's arrest.

"He was aggressive and belligerent," Lt. Andra Brown said of the Welsh actor. "He was... berating everyone from the security staff to the United States of America."


Here is a slightly conflicting report from Deadline..

"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." Ifans then was introduced at the panel as the new Spider-Man villain Lizard. If Sony changes its story to me, I'll let you know but TheCrap is a notoriously inaccurate website.


TheCrap? haha, ooooh website war!
