Troubled Australian actor Matthew Newton allegedly spat at a Miami hotel clerk before punching him in the face, a police report has claimed.
The police report has revealed new details of the allegations against Newton, including claims that he was "cocky" and drunk at the time of his arrest on assault charges on April 17, news.com.au reported.
Courtyard Marriott employee Ariel Vargas, 42, has not said whether he is considering taking civil action against Newton after the alleged assault.
Newton allegedly went into a rage at the clerk early in the morning of April 17 after the actor's mobile phone kept dropping out in his room.
"Victim stated the suspect spat in his face and he told the suspect, 'If you touch me, you're going to regret it'," the police report read.
"Victim then stated the suspect punched him in the nose with a closed fist causing his nose to bleed and be in pain.
"The suspect maintain(s) the victim spat in his face first and that is why the suspect punched the victim."
Newton's second arrest in two months has seen him dubbed the "bad boy of Miami" by Florida's leading newspaper.
"The 35-year-old Newton might not be well known Up Here, but Down Under he's shaping up as the Charlie Sheen/Sean Penn/Robert Downey Jr of Australia," the Miami Herald reported.
