Jeremy Renner attacked in vicious bar brawl

A night of bar-hopping in Phuket, Thailand ended horribly for Jeremy Renner. The Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol star was at a local bar with a group of friends when a violent fight broke out around 3:30 a.m. yesterday. Although Renner reportedly walked away with minor injuries, one man in his party, resort manager Vorasit Issara, was left in serious condition with stab wounds from a rotor axe and knife to the back, stomach and neck. According to gossip site TMZ, Issara had been embroiled in a heated argument with the bar staff earlier in the night but the brawl really erupted when Issara dropped a glass. Six men, alleged staff and friends of the establishment, then attacked Renner, Issara and the rest of his group. The accused admitted to also using metal pipes, a wooden club and a table leg in the attack. Authorities say all six men have now been arrested and charged with attempted murder.

    Boys are stupid (and some girls too). Why does drinking have to lead to fighting? It’s just pointless.

    This resort manager should stick to drinking at the bar at his resort.

    Wait a sec, a guy was stabbed and the accused admitted to using a metal pipe and a wooden club and table leg also…ok did anyone search this guy?
    Also a rich celebrity went to a club without having his entourage asking around to see how safe the night club was?! Really. It’s a foreign country with different rules and different night life. Dumb Dumb Dumb. Could have ended up in a wheelchair or dead.
