Surprisingly, Vinnie Jones Became Violent

This guy became violent? Inconceivable!

Folks, you won't believe this but Vinnie Jones, former footballing hardman and current tough-guy actor, has been arrested for some violent behavior. Apparently, he was involved in a bar brawl in South Dakota (WTF?) and was arrested for misdemeanor assault.

The arrest was first reported by E! Online Entertainment, who seem to have been watching some footy last weekend:

"Maybe Vinnie Jones mistook his surroundings for a Chelsea-Arsenal match."

I would have been more impressed if they had made a Wimbledon reference. I mean, Chelsea? He only played for the club for one season!

So it turns out that Vinnie was at Wiley's, a popular Sioux Falls bar, when he decided that he would like to partake in a game of pool with some of the locals. When one of the latter reportedly identified Vinnie as "Juggernaut" from the X-Men films, this didn't sit well with the thespian who prefers to be known for his other roles. This caused a donnybrook, in which some enterprising youngster hit Vinnie in the face with a beer glass. I imagine the scene looked something like this:
