How tacky.

The Amazing Spider-Man villain Rhys Ifans was arrested and cited for a misdemeanor battery just moments before the Spider-Man panel at Comic-Con on Friday night.

Ifans, who smelled of alcohol, became irate when a member os his entourage was unable to enter the hall because she didn't have the proper credentials. Instead of handling the situation like an adult, Ifans shoved a female security guard.

He was allowed to participate in the panel, showing up late, but the guard did subsequently make a citizen's arrest on the Welsh actor.

Lt. Andra Brown said:

"He was aggressive and belligerent. He was… berating everyone from the security staff to the United States of America.

He was cited and released, which is a non-custodial misdemeanor arrest."

He then left the venue immediately after receiving the citation.

He could be required to pay a fine and may even have to return to San Diego to contest the case before a judge. Brown says, "But, according to him, the U.S. sucks and he doesn't want to come back."

A spokesman for Sony says that he "deeply regrets the incident."

That's not the right way to treat your American fans! Getting arrested at an event where thousands of fans gather to see you is pretty ridiculous. Hopefully, you change your mind about America, Rhys. Maaaaybe, we'll welcome you back.

    Maaaaybe you don't get to have him back. America is not the exclusive club people beg to get into that you seem to think it is.

    Thing is you can say the same thing about ANYTHING in this world, this or that sucks. It's how you deal with the suckage that matters. This guy may be an alcoholic and needs some help. Sounds like a douche regardless. Think you really WANT him back? Who the hell is he anyway?

    Re: glamourextra – If you want to promote your film or music project in the most lucrative entertainment market on Earth, then yes it is. Don't bite the hand that feeds you and don't sh*t where you eat. Europeans seem to think overt hostility to Americans is totally acceptable, anywhere at anytime.

    Eurotrash-tastic! Out of all the brits they could've cast they picked what is seemingly the only one that can't hold his drink for shit. Why was he drinking when promoting the movie anyways? Smaaaaaart.

    My opinion isn't really all that relevant since I never had any intention of seeing this reboot.

    He doesn't want to come back and we don't want him here - sounds like a perfectly good arrangement to me.

    Dude, the whole drunken Welsh actor thing died with Richard Burton - and at least he had some style to excuse it. Drop it already.

    That does it……………….this film is gonna SUCK!

    I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17

    inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to

    our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay

    expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46

    inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me

    $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get

    all this stuff, BidsGet.com

    always have to chuckle when I see him-his role as Spike (Hugh Grant's flatmate in the moving Notting Hill with Julia Roberts) was highlarious
    unfortunate thathe may have a problem that he isn't seeking help for
