Actors get into barroom brawl
WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) – Actors Steve Buscemi and Vince Vaughn, in town filming a movie called “Domestic Disturbance,” got into a barroom brawl with locals that left Buscemi bloody and Vaughn in jail. Police say Buscemi was stabbed in the throat, head and arm in the fight at the Firebelly Lounge around 2 a.m. Thursday. He was treated at a hospital and released. Buscemi, who has starred in such films as “Fargo” and “28 Days,” flew to New York to recover. Timothy Fogerty of Wilmington was charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill. Vaughn, screenwriter Scott Rosenberg and two other Wilmington men were charged with misdemeanor assault. All four men posted bond and were released Thursday, police said.
Police said the cause of the brawl is under investigation. One witness said the fight started when Vaughn began talking to the girlfriend of one of the men at the nightclub. Tempers got heated and people went outside, where the fighting escalated. The filming of “Domestic Disturbance,” which stars John Travolta, continued Thursday without Buscemi, according to a publicist.
Buscemi is the kinda creepy looking guy who is unfortunately known as the guy who way fed into the chipper in Fargo. He’s since become one of my faves to watch since all of his characters are quirky, but interesting. He is starring in the highly anticipated “Final Fantasy Movie: due this summer.
