Some people take pills when they fly, but Jonathan Rhys Meyers medicates the old fashioned way before a flight, by getting stinking drunk. While waiting for a flight at Paris’ Charles de Gaulle Airport on Saturday, Rhys Meyers allegedly punched an employee at an airport bar because he was refused any more booze. After being cut off by his waiter, Rhys Meyers got into an argument with the bar’s manager and took a swing at another employee who intervened in the scuffle. He was placed in police custody for several hours and will have to appear at a tribunal to answer to the charges against him, which include assault and issuing death threats. Yikes.

The talented Tudors actor was arrested for public intoxication in 2007 and entered rehab that year to deal with his issues. Sadly, it looks like it might be time for rehab stint #2. [Source: People; Photo: FilmMagic]
