Jonathan Rhys Meyers arrested

Actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers was arrested Sunday afternoon at the Dublin airport in Ireland, facing charges of public drunkenness and breach of the peace as he tried to board a plane to England. Rhys Meyers, 30, was refused permission to board a London-bound flight when police confronted him twice after erratic, abusive behavior at an airport gate and at a desk of the British airline BMI. Dublin Airport Police said they called Ireland's national police force after Rhys repeatedly refused requests to calm down. The actor and star of Showtime's The Tudors was held for a short time, charged under Ireland's Public Order Act and released on his own bail. He is due in court for his arraignment December 5.
