Remember The Time – 2005 – Russell Crowe Arrested for Assault

REMEMBER THE TIME – 2005 – RUSSELL CROWE ARRESTED: It was on this day in 2005 that Russell Crowe was arrested in New York City for allegedly hitting a hotel desk clerk in the face with a phone after he was unable to complete a call to his wife in Australia.

In a statement to the TV show “Extra”, Crowe publicist called it a “minor altercation”, and added it was sparked by the front desk clerk’s unwillingness to replace Russell’s “faulty phone in his room”, offering instead “only attitude.” The publicist went on to explain that “Crowe brought the phone down to the front desk in an effort to address the situation in person. Words were exchanged, and Crowe wound up throwing the phone against the wall. He regrets that he lost his temper, but at no time did he assault anyone or touch any hotel employee.”

Crowe  pleaded guilty to third-degree assault in November.  In exchange, the judge sentenced him to a conditional discharge, and ordered him to pay $160 in court fees.
