Russell Crowe - Anger Issues

Sounds like Russell Crowe has some anger management issues:

NEW YORK (AP) - Russell Crowe was arrested Monday morning for allegedly throwing a telephone at an employee of the Manhattan hotel where he was staying, police said.

Crowe, 41, who plays a boxer in his latest film, "Cinderella Man," threw the phone at the Mercer Hotel employee, striking him in the face, during an argument at around 4:20 a.m., said police spokesman Sgt. Mike Wysokowski.

The Australian movie star was taken into custody, fingerprinted and charged with second-degree assault, said police Lieutenant Eugene Whyte.

Crowe was expected to appear in Manhattan Criminal Court later Monday.

An employee who answered the phone at the Mercer Hotel in SoHo said he was unaware of the incident.
I really don't understand how anyone would think that it is acceptable to throw a phone at another person... maybe I just don't understand the pressures of a Hollywood actor... We should all be so lucky.

The funny thing is that Russell Crowe commits a criminal offense, and half of the article is spent discussing his new movie (I didn't quote the remainder of the article that talked about how "Cinderella Man" was a box office disappointment). Why does such a negative act entitle this Jack Ass to free publicity of his movie?? Something is seriously wrong with America.
