Sam Worthington and his girlfriend Lara Bingle are being sued for $10 million in connection with a violent altercation with a paparazzi photographer earlier this year.

The cameraman, Sheng Li, claims in a new court filing that he sustained injuries including a torn shoulder and facial contusions during his encounter with Worthington and Bingle as they exited a New York bar last February.

At the time, police took both Worthington and Li into custody in handcuffs, charging them with assault.

Li says in his lawsuit that Worthington and Bingle made false statements about him to law enforcement officials, accusing them of slander and libel.
