Whether you've seen him as the dangerous Slade Wilson in Arrow , recoiled in fear at his performance as Azog in [The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug](tag:512310), or watched in awe at his might as Crixus in Spartacus, you're likely to know who Manu Bennett is if you've kicked it within geek culture for long enough. The actor is also set to appear as Allanon in MTV's upcoming fantasy series, The Shannara Chronicles.
Unfortunately, his on-screen danger recently took an alleged turn for real life during Alamo City Comic Con, where the actor was arrested for reportedly punching a man at a party.
Details at the moment are scarce, but the altercation reportedly took place around 4:30 am on Sunday morning at the nearby Grand Hyatt Hotel, and while the actor is facing assault charges, he was confirmed as released from holding by 1pm on Sunday.
Stay tuned for news as it's released.
